Online Workshop Summary: I have been asked repeatedly to put this workshop online. The 2020 Covid Pandemic was just the inspiration! The benefits of having this workshop online is that you can revisit the lecture presentations as often as you wish (they are content rich). Having taught this online several times now, participants like the combination of self-paced lectures, combined with the zoom classes, and of course the one-on-one video visits are my favorite. Just like the in-person event, this certification workshop is designed to train health educators with an interest and background in “Holistic Stress Management” to teach, direct or facilitate quality presentations/workshops at their worksite or private practice. The focus of this workshop is holistic—honoring the integration, balance and harmony of mind, body, spirit and emotions for optimal well-being. The World Health Organization cites stress as “a global epidemic.” Others now call it the “black plague of the 21st century.” In light of current world issues, from the Covid Pandemic, racial disparities, economic uncertainty, climate change, work-life imbalance, increases in chronic diseases and everything in between, the words “change” and “stress” are becoming synonymous. It is no secret that people’s coping skills for change are underdeveloped and certainly underutilized. The purpose of this workshop is two-fold: 1) to gain a sound background in a holistic approach to stress management, addressing not only the causes of stress through effective coping skills, but the symptoms of stress with effective relaxation techniques, and 2) to refine excellent teaching skills in which to share this knowledge most effectively, whether it is through a one hour presentation or a 16-week college credit course.
