Active approaches to worry, meeting things head on

This session is part of the psychosocial resources for personal wellbeing and professional competence series and looks at active approaches to worry, meeting things head on


We all worry some of the time. During stressful times such as these, it can build up into a problem and add to our stress. This workshop will look at what worry is, why we do it and how to avoid getting caught in unhelpful and unproductive cycles of worry. For participants who habitually worry it will provide some ideas for taking control of the habit and developing alternative ways of living with stress and uncertainty.

This session will be delivered online via Zoom.

  • Have explored the attitudes, beliefs and behaviours associated with worrying
  • Have differentiated between productive and unproductive worrying
