Professional Certificate in Stress Management

Arium School of Arts & Sciences

Course introduction

This course presents a positive, proactive, evidence-based approach to stress not as an ordeal to survive but as an opportunity to thrive. It explores the different dimensions of stress and its negative effects. At the same time, it emphasizes that stress can be an opportunity for learning and growth that enable individuals to thrive – that is, to function at a higher level both psychologically and physically. Most importantly, students will be able to develop their own personal stress management toolkit and apply in real life situations.
