STRESS MANAGEMENT SEMINARS HELP YOU DEAL WITH ANXIETY
Our "primitive" response mechanism, which Walter Cannon called the "Flight/Fight" response, has never evolved fast enough to keep pace with the rapidity of technology. This core survival mechanism originated billions of years ago and is “hard-wired” in our genetic code. Our automatic reaction to fight or flee is still needed on occasion, but in regular social or business interaction is a thorn in our side as we respond to time pressure, workplace challenges, or social anxiety with bodily symptoms of pain and tension. Any of these symptoms can affect an individual or group. 70-90% of visits to medical doctor’s offices are for symptoms either caused by or made worse as a reaction to this primitive stress response. Using stress management education for both information and ‘hands-on” interaction can prove to be a helpful component in a comprehensive stress management program.

There are many stress management seminars and workshops available today, and more are continually appearing. Most of them share these key elements:
- Analysis/Survey Of Stress – This can be a written survey, a question-based interview, a review of physical symptoms, group interaction, biofeedback monitoring or a combination of these. This cause-effect data will assist in formulating and directing effective stress relief strategies.
- General Stress Information – This begins establishing the context for the individual or group members to understand the overall stressors that impact many of us over and above our specific age, gender, demographic, occupation and lifestyle.
- User-specific Stress Information – This addresses the areas of the individual or group members that are peculiar to their situation, i.e., business pressure for executives, maternal anxiety for new mothers, social peer pressure for teenagers, and the like.
- Monitoring/Red Flags – This is useful proactive stress monitoring information addressing mental and physical responses to stress that may even go unnoticed by the individual or group members. This is the beginning of integrating stress management strategies into daily work, family and recreation areas.
- Stress Management Tips/Techniques/Strategies – Presented here is the “toolbox” of approaches to effective stress management; these can range widely in scope:
- Social – from joining a support group to specific one-on-one counseling
- Psychological - from working with group therapy to psychotherapy
- Physical – from solo walking to joining an amateur sports team
- Recreational - from a simple hobby to joining a travel or activity club
There are as many avenues to stress relief management as there are causes of stress; a well-structured regimen should encompass the generalities as well as target the specifics.
Seminar and Workshop Sources
Stress management has become a pivotal issue today; even smaller communities, as well as online resources, offer a variety of services to aid with anxiety and stress relief. Some are:
There’s a world of resources far larger than the scope of the stress and anxiety that may be troubling you - it merely requires some effort to look for the information and it will prove to be well worth it!
- Professional Medical Providers – HMO’s and PPO’s such as Kaiser or Blue Cross, as well as local hospitals and clinics, usually offer stress management assistance in the form of group workshop formats.
- Schools – Colleges and Universities both at the state and community level often have classes and groups, often at night or on weekends. Medical/Psychological teaching facilities sometimes offer student-led stress relief seminars and workshops to the local community.
- Local Support Groups – Check your local library, recovery group, or Chamber of Commerce to see if there are any stress or anxiety relief groups that meet locally.
- State/County Organizations – State and local government services have become increasingly aware of the stress and anxiety induced by global terrorism and have begun to place emphasis on assisting citizens with stress. Contact civic offices to determine if this help is available in your area.
- Online – The Internet has increasingly become a powerful tool in all forms of education and for gathering information. A search of online resources will not only give you helpful information on stress and anxiety management seminars and workshops but also offers interactive programs that you can explore for proactive stress relief.
