      Managing Stress in the Workplace


    Explore the concept of stress and learn practical strategies to minimise its effects. We will explore the types of workplace stressors commonly experienced and the effects these can have on your personal health and the health of your workplace

    Together, we will explore a range of strategies to add to your toolkit – including ways to problem-solve identified stressors and enhance your coping skills and resources in order to minimise the effects of stress on your personal health and wellbeing.

    This workshop will look at:

    • six core factors associated with stress at work
    • the relationship between stress and individual performance
    • three core strategies to address external stressors
    • proactive and preventative strategies to minimise the impacts of stress
    • coping strategies to enhance your resilience to stress

    Facilitated by:

    Dr Lorraine Stokes is an endorsed organisational psychologist and Director of Russell Professional Group. For the past 14 years, she has provided organisational psychology services to public and private sector organisations across Queensland – including individual coaching and counselling, conflict resolution services, team reviews and development, and early intervention for psychological injury in the workplace. Her doctoral research involved an in-depth exploration of large-scale change in a Queensland hospital, and demonstrated how individual and organisational identities can strongly influence how employees perceive and respond to organisational change.

    Jasmin Shewell is a provisionally registered psychologist who works as an intern consultant for the Work and Organisational Resilience Centre at Griffith University, where she provides organisational psychology services to organisations across Queensland.  Jasmin is a Master of Organisational Psychology candidate in Griffith’s School of Applied Psychology with a keen interest in positive psychology and staff wellbeing in the workplace. With 12 years working for the Department of Education, her thesis research hopes to explore the effects of experienced mentor teachers on beginning teachers as a strategy to reduce burnout.

    • Goals for program

    The success of this program is built with your passion, generosity of time and spirit. In addition to helping individuals develop and succeed, you will also have a great time connecting with like-minded professionals who are passionate about fostering and developing others.
