Stress Management for Library Workers: Real Tools for Your Life, Career, and Workplace Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Stress management is often described as a self-help concept—something to be applied in a personal, not professional context. But stress can have very real business implications, including staff burnout, low morale, and reduced productivity. Ensuring you and your employees maintain a healthy level of self-care and are aware of stress-reducing techniques can help enhance morale.

In this new workshop, Steve Albrecht, an HR expert and longtime meditation practitioner, offers you and your staff insights on how to keep stress in your work and personal life under control. Our focus for this session is on stress management in general and not specifically on mindfulness, although mindfulness is certainly a component of stress management. We will discuss life and work stress, and how both affect you physically, emotionally, and even biologically. You’ll leave with practical strategies that you can implement right away to help relieve stress.

By participating in this event, you will learn: 

  • How stress can be both good and bad for us.
  • How stress affects us physically, emotionally, and medically.
  • Understand the components of the BREADS stress management model.
  • When and how to use the List of Seven Choices for stressful decisions.
  • Manage stress in difficult workplace situations.
  • Manage your stress for better personal relationships.
  • “Thought Stopping,” which helps put an end to intrusive thoughts.
  • Your mind and body’s reaction to traumatic stress.
  • A relaxation exercise that you can do daily.
