About the webinar:

While some levels of stress can have benefits in motivation, chronic workplace stress causes overwhelm and can erode personal health. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased levels of workplace stress significantly for school employees. This webinar teaches you about the effects of workplace stress on your body, how to identify the root causes and develop short and long term strategies to make positive change. Learn how to choose healthy responses to stressful events to cope more effectively with demanding expectations and change.

This webinar is based on the School Action for Safety and Health (SASH) Program administered by the Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation in the California Department of Industrial Relations through an interagency agreement with the Labor Occupational Health Program at the University of California, Berkeley.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

– Describe the body’s responses to stress in acute and chronic workplace stress
