Stresscontrol - Learn the skills to get on top of stress
HSE Cavan/Monaghan in association with Community and Statutory Partners are rolling out three more 'Stresscontrol' programmes starting in May in Cavan Institute, YWCA Monaghan and the Workhouse, Carrickmacross. Further details of start dates and times are outlined on the poster attached.
Stresscontrol is a FREE six session programme. Each session lasts for 90 minutes and is delivered once a week. Stresscontrol was devised by Dr. Jim White, a clinical psychologist in Glasgow, to help the large number of people who complained of stress and who were keen to learn how to tackle their problems themselves.
People who come to Stresscontrol will learn simple strategies for alleviating stress, and the course is delivered in lecture format so that people do not need to interact. This makes it less stressful for participants, there are no embarrassing exercises, just simple information explained in such a way that people learn over the course how to become their own therapists.
Booklets are given after each session, and people can practice the exercises between sessions.
There is no need to register in advance, just turn up to the first session and there is no cost to attend.
