Stress Management

The psychotherapist’s objective is to use tools to better understand stress and thus better manage it. At the end of this training, the participant will be able to easily recognize stressors, to understand his personal process in order to better manage them, as well as the tools to learn how to manage the other’s stress.

Mastering stress is first of all knowing it.

The consequences of stress can be very serious.

However, in our modern societies, we tend to make it a commonplace phenomenon with which everyone ends up living as best they can.

It is indeed important not to minimize the consequences of stress in order to avoid the development of more serious disorders. Of course, it is not a question of dramatizing these stress problems.

Nevertheless, it is necessary to take certain measures. Although stress can sometimes seem stimulating in certain circumstances, the fact remains that whatever form of stress we experience, if it occurs too often, it can cause wear and tear on psychophysiological functions.

The example of overwork is a fairly classic phenomenon that indicates that the person is in a state of stress that has already set in because he or she has not taken the necessary rest to avoid it. The causes of stress are sometimes poorly understood. They may have multiple origins that need to be identified in order to find the most effective remedy or method of stress management.
