On The Job Stress

A Ready-to-Run Stress Management Workshop

Many of our customers have asked us for help with workshops on specific topics. We have assembled a group of ten ready-to-run topics from the materials in our seminal Structured Exercises in Stress Management and Structured Exercises in Wellness Promotion. Each has everything you need to present a successful, topic-focused, three-hour workshop, including mini-lectures, handouts, and group activities. Don’t have three hours? We have included suggestions on how to cut the workshop back to an hour.

On the Job Stress will help you prepare quickly and efficiently for presentations on workplace stress. The multi-part session is flexible so that you can select the activities most appropriate for your group. They include:

  • Stressful Occupations divides participants into occupational groups, brainstorms on-the-job stressors, and campaigns to have theirs declared the “most stressful occupation.” This lively exercise is particularly effective for mixed professional groups. (35-45 minutes)
  • Spice and Arsenic uses an unusual measuring device to help participants assess current and past stress levels and decide how much is enough for them. (20-30 minutes)
  • On the Job Stress Grid is an exercise where participants use a unique grid to pinpoint their job stress and its sources, rank the intensity of their stress, identify their job hot spots and explore possibilities for coping. (25-40 minutes)
  • Merry-Go-Round is a rowdy energizer where participants discover the stress of taking on too many burdens. (5-15 minutes)
  • A-B-C-D-E-F-G Planner leads participants through a 7-step process to devise a concrete plan for managing one life stressor more effectively. (20-30 minutes)
  • Hot Tub is an unusual relaxation experience where participants relax in the soothing warmth of imaginary hot springs. (8 minutes)

All these activities are complete with variations to adapt to your specific group or time frame. Each includes a full list of materials needed and suggestions to make your workshop run smoothly and professionally.
