Men can be negatively impacted by chronic stress on many levels -- physically, emotionally, socially, psychologically, professionally, sexually, and spiritually. Current research suggests that how each gender may react to and handle stress can vary widely. Understanding our specific reactions to stressors and how to address stress more effectively can have profoundly positive effects on every arena of life. Perspectives Center for Holistic Therapy is pleased to offer a stress management course designed specifically for men. This course focuses on teaching practical stress management techniques and strategies that can be utilized in daily life. This ten-week course will be held on Mondays nights. Tuition is $300.
