Stress management- e-learning courses

Praxis42 has introduced a new range of stress-management e-learning courses — now all offering the added benefit of CPD certification.

Mike Stevens, head of training at Praxis42, says: “Recent statistics confirm that work-related stress is widespread in the UK working population. Studies have shown that about one in five people find their work stressful, and over half a million people say they have experienced work-related stress at a level they believe has actually made them ill.”

Praxis42’s Stress Awareness for Employees and Stress Awareness for Managers aim to help organisations comply with legal requirements to ensure that stress in the workplace is properly managed, and that risk assessments are carried out. The company says both courses will help ensure that employees and managers are aware of the causes of stress, and how they can help reduce it in the workplace. Trainees will learn the difference between stress and pressure, and recognise the common signs and symptoms of stress in themselves and others.

Praxis42 says all its courses have received continuing professional development (CPD) certification, which means the courses have been independently assessed as suitable for industry-wide, pan-disciplinary CPD purposes. To find out more, visit
