Today (15 December,2009) I was invited by SHECOM of Pusat Makmal Bahan-Bahan (PMB), JKR at Tabuan Jaya Kuching to give a talk on Stress Management at 9:30 a.m.
My talk was entitled Occupational & Psychological Stress. My presentation is divided into two part : 1) Understand Stress 2) Basic Management of Stress.
I focused on 2 components of stress situation which is vital to understand in order to manage STRESS effectively. First component is the STRESSOR or source of stress. The first step in stress management is to identify the STRESSOR and decide whether it can be eliminate, modify or cannot at all. If the source can be eliminated and modified, it will make it easy to manage the stress. In some situation, the source cannot be changed at all for example loss event (death).So we have to be rational to accept it as a FACT in life. In this case, the strategy is to concentrate on the way you cope (response) with the situation. The approach will be individual and organizational.
Although the talk has a small crowd but during Q&A session, there were a lot of questions asked by the participants.
