Stress can interfere with behavior-change plans, as coping with stressful feelings overrides future plans to quit smoking, start exercising or eat fewer desserts. This course presents research on stress and health and the factors affecting this relationship. Because stress is a part of every client’s life, health and fitness professionals must be able to discuss the impact of stress on health and on behavior change. You will receive instructions on how to teach several simple relaxation techniques and learn ways to encourage clients to increase resistance to stress-related symptoms and illnesses. The course also features a podcast with Exercise Psychologist Barbara Brehm, Ed.D., and ACE Exercise Physiologist Jacque Crockford.
You will learn:
- Factors influencing the stress-health relationship.
- Several ways health and fitness professionals can help clients reduce feelings of stress and increase resilience.
- How feelings of stress often affect health behaviors and the behavior change process.
Easily understood. Science-based, but not too technical.
