Next Meeting – 15 February 2016
Coping with Stress
Peter Gowers is an IT manager who has spent the last 10 years learning about stress, positive psychology and doing his best to support people with the challenges of the modern workplace.
Stress is a bit of the elephant in the room, with the HSE showing 4 million lost days to workplace injury and over 9 million to stress, depression and anxiety disorders. In parallel, a recent MIND survey said that 85% of people taking time off due to stress would lie about it. However, it’s an extremely personal thing, people’s stress can be as much about their home lives as their work, so what can you do?
Pete has been running presentations for many years trying to answer that question in an entertaining and helpful way. This talk will be a mixture of the latest science and thinking on stress together with some fun approaches to how you can deal with it yourself and help others
