About the workshops

This Dealing with stress series will help you:

  • Understand what stress is.
  • Identify areas of stress in your life and which ones are important for you to change.
  • Build skills and discover tools to manage the physical, emotional, and attitudinal effects of stress.
  • Develop skills to change what you do, how you think, and how you face conflict so that you have less stress in your life.

Start with the first workshop today and complete the others on your schedule. Each workshop will take 15-25 minutes to complete and builds on the concepts addressed in the previous ones.

The workshops are easy to use. Each workshop features:

  • An overview of the workshop.
  • Descriptions of the core concepts.
  • Examples that pertain to agricultural life.
  • Questionnaires and worksheets you can use to apply concepts and skills.

There are brief instructions at the beginning of each workshop for navigating through the narrated presentation. Most people find it self-explanatory once they begin.
