Are you stressed? Stress is a part of many of our lives, but too much stress can make us unproductive, frustrated, and can even have an impact on our physical and emotional lives.
This course is not going to take away all of your stress. However, it is designed to help you understand what stress is, and help you know the differences between “good stress” and “bad stress.”
In this 3 credit graduate-level course, you will also identify your stressors, reflect upon how you manage your stress, and utilize effective relaxation and stress reduction techniques.

Your assignment after each “tool” is to complete a Stress Management log and record your experience by reflecting on what you have learned and how you will be able to use some of these “tools” in your life.
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
