Colors Under Stress 

     Somewhere between the extremes of "too little" and "too much" stress exists an amount of stress that is healthy, motivating, and stimulating. Therefore, stress cannot and should not be eliminated, but it can be effectively managed

     When stress reaches an extreme level, it can be debilitating and even threaten your life or career. With too little stress, you lose stimulation and motivation. You simply don't have any reason to face each new daw. Whereas, too much stress is a known leading factor in disease causation. Both extremes can contribute to a deterioration of your physical, mental, emotional and behavioral well-being.

     The goal of this workshop is to encourage and empower individuals to make the choice to effectively manage their stress, and to optimally foster their well-being and quality of life.

Utilizing experiential activities and discussions, workshop participants will gain an understanding of:

  • the conceptual and functional definitions of stress;

  • the fundamental human needs underlying stress;

  • catastrophic and normative stressors;

  • interaction style and temperament specific stressors;

  • physical, mental, emotional, and behavorial stress indicators;

  • a model for effectively managing stress.
