Holistic Stress Management Instructor Training
Brian Luke Seaward, PhD
Executive Director, The Paramount Wellness Institute
This workshop is designed to train all allied health professionals to teach, direct or facilitate quality stress management presentations/workshops at their worksite. The focus of this intensive workshop is holistic—honoring the integration, balance and harmony of mind, body spirit and emotions for optimal well-being. The purpose of this workshop is two-fold: 1) to gain a sound background in the holistic approach to stress management, (addressing not only the causes of stress through effective coping skills, but the symptoms of stress with effective relaxation techniques), and 2) to learn, refine and practice excellent teaching skills in which to share this knowledge most effectively, whether it is through a one-hour presentation or a 16 week college credit course. Professionals who have greatly benefited from this workshop include: nurses, social workers, counselors, schoolteachers, wellness directors, therapists, health educators, college professors and physicians, and those wishing to make a career change. Special focus includes the topics of burnout, work-life balance, healthy boundaries, stress & nutrition, mindfulness and improved sleep quality.
