Stressmanagement training

A short and interactive training aimed at exchanging experiences, gaining new insights and applying these insights directly to your daily life.

Stress is a physical phenomenon that can enable us to work faster and more productively. But when are you under too much stress, and how can you make stress work to your advantage? Do you notice that you sometimes have too much stress, perhaps resulting in mental or physical symptoms? Would you like to make a change? Then this is the training for you.

Goals of the training 

  • Learn what stress is. 
  • Learn how stress can manifest itself. 
  • Learn about (un)healthy coping styles. 
  • Gain insight into your thoughts contributing to your stress, and how to change them. 
  • Learn different ways to relax. 
  • Learn how to manage your time.

Working method 

The training consists of 3 training sessions of 1.5 hours in a small group (maximum of 15 participants). Participants are expected to attend each session. During the training we will be working in plenary and in pairs. The language of communication is English.


During the sessions, different topics are discussed. There is room for interaction, questions, and discussion. In order to make the best possible use of the available time, participants are expected to work out some questions or registration assignments themselves before the start of the training and between sessions.  

After registration, you will receive an email with the assignment to prepare for the first session.
