Stress

We all experience stress, both good and bad, especially in college. Consider doing this workshop before final exams to help your residents manage their stress!

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Reflect on what causes them stress and what stresses others at UNC
  2. Practice methods of relaxation and know other ways to help manage their stress

Materials:

Laptop/projector, easel with notepad, markers, chosen activity materials

Preparation:

Gather relevant activity materials and print handouts

Workshop:

There is a PowerPoint presentation available that covers the basics of stress and tips for managing it that should take 15 – 20 minutes. The Tips to Manage Your Stress handouts go well with the presentation, or could be used on their own to facilitate a discussion about stress management. When the presentation or discussion is paired with an activity or two, the workshop should take 40 – 120 minutes, depending on your choice of activity. Don't forget to check out the Resources page for more info!
