Dealing with Individual and Organizational stress
Follow Michael R Bassoon
Excessive stress is the number one public health issue throughout the US and internationally. Most illness, including but not limited to cancer, cardiovascular & endocrine, have a stress related component. Within the workplace, expensive healthcare visits, sick days, accidents, poor quality and productivity, and deviate behavior, are ALL related to stress and the associated strain which your body and mind will undergo. Internal (including unconscious and trauma related) and external conflict are major contributing factors. Resilience refers to the ability to tolerate stressers, and has both mental and physical components.
