Passion for the work you do can drive a ‘good stress’ reaction; however, the roadblocks, lack of outcome-control and other negative factors cause anger &/or anxiety which works against the positive gains. Understanding the neurochemistry of stress gives the person new insight into their own behaviour. Techniques to combat the effects of prolonged stress are explored. Current research articles will be referenced to support Karen’s approach to ‘moving on’ in order to renew your commitment to the journey.
Participants will learn about the neurochemistry of stress (specifically the biogenic amines: dopamine, norephinephrine and serotonin) and how it directs behaviour. Through a presentation, small group learning and whole group activities, particpants will leave with a plan to reduce the effects of stress on the body and brain.
