  • The Goal of this workshop is…
  • If you answered the following:A It means you are a very active and reliable person. You address problems by dealing with them directly instead of letting things resolve themselves. It’s most likely that your stress coping mechanism is turning stress into a positive stress which allows you to benefit from it while dealing with it at the same time.B You’re most likely a very relaxed, laid back person and logical individual. You take your time with things, minimizing chances of error on your part. This methodological approach to things allow you to root out most problems before they become problems. Caution as this can become too passive of an approach.C You most likely tend to internalize stress and would be more stress free if you worked on new mechanisms for dealing with outside stress factors.
