Free* Online Stress Prevention and Well-Being One-Day Course

Dignity Street is the first charity in the UK to be officially recognised by the International Stress Management Association for our high standard of Stress Prevention Well-begin and Resilience Course

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-house course has been temporally suspended and replaced with a one-day twice-weekly online version of our residential course and will continue until social distancing returns to normal.

Course Details.

Using new technology we are running live, fully interactive sessions with our tutor based in our Cardiff  TV studio and broadcasting to participants taking part online from the comfort of their homes.

Using automatic motion detection cameras in our studio, the tutor has the freedom to move around the studio as if presenting the programme under normal conditions, rather than being static and tied to a laptop.

The tutor sees delegates not on a PC monitor, but on giant screens in the studio, enabling him to better interact with participants who he sees on a ‘life-size’ basis.

There is always time for participants to ask questions and debate them during the course. Or If preferred participants can email their tutor the question to answer privately.
