The content of this training revolves around stress management, the attitudes towards it, and the skills and knowledge required on individual bases, to manage it. In this training, the personal definitions of stress are addressed, as well as the coping skills that the participants currently use. In addition, new ways of coping, managing or dealing with stress are brought into the room by participants as well as by the activities housed within this design. This training was designed for graduate students to enrich their personal learning experience while at school by assisting them in discovering the best way for each of them to manage their stress. However, it could be easily utilized with other groups who are looking for ways to manage, cope or become friends with their daily or continual stress. Activities are comprised of a range of thought-provoking and physical activities consisting of a stress-relieving icebreaker, two connected art activities, small group as well as whole group discussion and brainstorming.
