The Stress and Coping program is intended for adult audiences such as employee groups, organization members, or conference attendees.
Stress is defined as a need or demand people confront, that is perceived as burdensome or threatening, and can lead to physical or mental health problems (Pearlin 1989, Thoits 2010, Dimsdale 2008, Chen & Miller 2007, Keller et al., 2012). It is relentless, attacking in the form of external sources on a regular basis. Stress is also a result of everyday choices we make that influence our mental and physical health, causing internal stressors that can be difficult to manage. Nebraska Extension offers interactive online or in-person programs featuring awareness regarding
- the variety of symptoms of stress
- how stress manifests itself physically
- coping strategies
- tips for approaching and communicating with a stressed person
- helpful resources for an overall higher quality of life
