STRESS RESILIENCE TRAINING

Linda Allen with her partner Derek Plunkett are currently contracted by Tusla ( Child and Family Agency) to run this Stress Resilience programme for staff in the Social work Dept in DSW (Dublin South West) and KWW (Kildare West Wicklow).

This programme has been designed and tailored for the workplace. They run drop in style Clinics on a monthly basis for an hour and a half per session where staff  come and participate in an interactive way. This work is directed to support and help staff to:

  • recognise their stressors and triggers
  • understand how they operate under pressure in challenging times
  • develop helpful and effective strategies to support their resourcefulness.
  • learn techniques for changing internal mental processes that create stress
  • enhance effective communication skills

Stressed staff results in reduced productivity, increased absenteeism, poor working environment and morale.

Stress resilient staff are healthier and happier, more resourceful, productive and co-operative and have better attendance.

Broadly the methods employed are                                                                                                 

  • Mindfulness &meditation
  • Stress release techniques
  • Strategies for managing stressful states
  • Self-help exercises- physical and mental to build stress resilience 
  • Relaxation and breath-work 

These supports are designed to benefit participants to better manage stress related issues not only at work but also in their personal life.

Their broad experience helps to design and prepare material that is suited and pertinent to the groups they work with. They have a wealth of knowledge, skill and training which is delivered in a  professional and personable style.
