As a society, we often appear to be waging a war on stress, but we have a choice about whether to view stressful situations as being invariably toxic or as opportunities to face a healthy challenge. This experiential recording will present a therapeutic model that assumes that all too often it’s our confused relationship with stress that’s the problem, not the stress itself.
