Taming the Stress Monster:

Strategies for Managing Stress as a Working Parent

Request Information

Introduction

Being a working parent can be stressful. Between the demands of your job and the responsibilities of caring for your family, it can be tough to find time for yourself and your own needs.

In this training, we will explore the causes of stress for working parents and discuss strategies for managing and reducing stress.

The goal is to help working parents understand the sources of their stress and provide tools and resources to help them manage it effectively.

Details‚Äč
  • Definition of stress and its effects on physical and mental health
  • Causes of stress for working parents
  • Strategies for managing and reducing stress, including time management, stress-reduction techniques, and self-care
  • Workplace policies and support for stress management
  • Resources for stress management
  • Lecture and discussion
  • Group exercises and role-plays
  • Case studies and real-life examples

included in 90-min, Half Day & Full Day sessions

  • Group exercise: Participants will work in small groups to identify the sources of stress in their own lives and brainstorm potential solutions.
  • Role-play: Participants will role-play a scenario in which a working parent is experiencing high levels of stress and will practice using the strategies learned in the session to manage it.

(included in Half-Day and Full Day sessions)

  • The Stress Process Model: This model explains how stress occurs and how it can be managed. It can be leveraged within work settings by identifying the sources of stress and implementing strategies to reduce or eliminate them.
  • The Transactional Model of Stress and Coping: This model suggests that stress is the result of a person’s appraisal of a situation as well as their coping resources and strategies. It can be leveraged within work settings by providing support and resources to help working parents cope with stress.
  • The Demand-Control-Support Model: This model suggests that the combination of high demands, low control, and low social support can lead to stress. It can be leveraged within work settings by reducing demands, increasing control, and providing social support to working parents.

At the end of this session, participants will have a better understanding of the causes of stress for working parents and will be equipped with strategies and resources to manage and reduce stress. Participants will be able to identify and address sources of stress in their own lives and will be prepared to implement stress-management strategies to improve their overall well-being.
