Fortunately, there are many things you can do to minimize and cope with stress and learn how to avoid burnout.

It has been very positive experience and I will be using the knowledge gained in the workplace as well as my personal life.

I have learned a lot from the course trainer as well as I have benefited by exchanging views and opinions with my European colleagues.

Very positive experience! Useful material presented relevant to my wellbeing and prevention of stress and burnout – right to the point! Definitely worth attending!

The course has enabled me to realise the signs/symptoms of stress in myself and others around me and has also highlighted the risk of constant stress turning into burnout and its prevention.
