About this Course

In this course, Dr Sarita Robinson (University of Central Lancashire) discusses the topic of stress. We begin, in module one, by thinking about how we can define stress before moving on to examine how the body responds to stress in module two. Module three looks at the impact stress has on our health and well-being, while module four explores different methods of measuring stress. Finally, in module five, we think about how we can manage and cope with stressful situations.
