I’ve just had this morning the last session of my Stress Management course. It was organised by Princess Royal Trust, but is actually an Open University course. I’ve found it so helpful. When I signed up for it, I expected just another relaxation class, but it has been so much more. We have covered assertiveness, time management, coping with day-to day-hassles, body awareness, support systems, and so much more. It has been very intensive, and people have dropped out along the way, to the extent that the last two sessions have been just the facilitator and me! But that was OK, I had a chance to address in depth my own demons. Each session ended with a relaxation period, using a different technique each time, so that we could decide for ourselves which one we preferred. It was free, funded by PRT. If you have a branch near you I would recommend that you contact them to see if they run the course. I found it enjoyable and very useful. I’m going to try to make my own notes on the ‘dealing with hassles’ session, which I found particularly useful, and will put a copy on Resources. I can’t copy directly, because it’s OU copyright!
