Now you can teach people how to control stress internally with a simple psychological technique called cognitive restructuring. Most people don't realize that their thinking (i.e. their perception of events) is a major cause of stress. They blame external factors (like a traffic jam or a difficult boss) never realizing it's their thinking about these events and circumstances that is the true cause of most stress.
If you are a trainer and you are not familiar with this important strategy for lowering stress, or even if you are, it can’t be emphasized enough that this “thinking person’s” approach to managing stress can really empower people and change their lives. It takes NO time, can be done AT WORK, on the fly, while your stress is happening, and the average person has NEVER even heard of it.
Part 1 teaches people how their negative self-talk (which they barely even notice) and their negative thinking styles are the driving force behind almost ALL the stressful events they encounter. Part 2 is about the ABC’s of stress. Based on psychologist, Albert Ellis’s famous ABC equation, this simple formula helps you unlock the sequence of a stressful event and learn how to stop stress while it’s happening. Part 3 teaches people how they can put what they learned in parts 1&2 into action and really begin to change their lives for the better.
Best-selling, self-help author, Dr. Stephen Covey once said, “All our opportunity for personal growth lies in small space between stimulus and response.” Once you learn the ABC equation, you’ll see that the STIMULUS (Covey is referring to) is A; your RESPONSE is C and the small space is B. Learning how to tease out that small space and change your thinking at B, is the goal of this entire comprehensive package.
