Stress & Personal Resilience for Staff

One Day Training
Nairobi, Kenya

17 Sep

More >

Why?

For many of us, stress is part of the job. It is in fact an aspect of the work that most of us are attracted to as it challenges us to perform difficult tasks in challenging circumstances. This means that to a certain extent, we may perceive stress as positive and motivating. It prompts us to take action and to shift our thinking patterns to new perspectives and possibilities.

However, in the long run stress can takes its toll, and our capacity to deal with it and adversity can slowly erode. It can have a detrimental impact on our physical health as well as in our professional and personal lives, and in some cases, can lead to burnout. Because of this, it is evident that learning how to deal with stress is an essential part of providing efficient and effective humanitarian services, as caring for others without caring for yourself is an impossible task.

We believe that caring for one self includes actively building and maintaining your capacity to deal with stress and adversity, also known as your ’personal resilience’. Evidence shows that there are identifiable factors which boost resilience that can be developed through time and training.

How?

InterHealth offers a one-day training course that will look into a variety of approaches to stress in order to increase resilience and prevent burnout.

In the morning we will be looking into stress, its symptoms, and tools to reduce them. We will also discuss ways of reducing stress in the workplace for both yourself and your team. In the afternoon, we look into resilience and explore the factors that positively contribute to a person’s resilience.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of stress;
  • Identify how to recognise stress and burnout symptoms;
  • Develop strategies to effectively manage and reduce stress;
  • Understand what is meant by personal resilience;
  • Have an overview of the five themes for personal resilience and be able to use them to review resilience factors and support needs;
  • Develop the capacity to understand resilience factors as a risk assessment marker.

InterHealth uses a variety of learning methods suitable for adults to cater for different learning styles. This training uses:

  • PowerPoint
  • Brainstorming
  • Group discussion and feedback
  • Drawing
  • Brief games
  • Scenario-based work
  • Working on personal output to take away

To take away

At the end of the training each participant will take away:

  1. An InterHealth Workbook on ‘Stress & Personal Resilience’ as well as any other relevant sources to remind participants of their learning and to extend their thinking.
  2. A Personal Resilience Review including identified action points to strengthen personal resilience.

Who is it for?

We have designed this workshop for anyone who works within humanitarian, development and mission sectors. We also welcome anyone interested in attending, particularly those in a management role.
