Time: 15.00 – 17.00
Location: KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan)
The Stockholm Student Health Services' course, "ACT - Managing stress and promoting health", teaches you how to cope with the stress that is an inevitable part of daily life, not least as a student.
The course is based on a form of therapy that is called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - ACT. When used in a stress management course, it is called Acceptance and Commitment Training. Research from both Sweden and England shows that ACT is an effective method for reducing stress in adults and adolescents.
You will learn hands-on tools to manage stress and to live your life more in harmony with your life values. The course consists of four group sessions, once a week, each session lasts about three hours. The content is a mixture of theory and practical exercises. During the course we will focus on the following questions:
- How can we relate to stress in our daily lives?
- What is stress and what happens in your body when you are stressed?
- What should we accept and what can we change?
- How can we prevent depression or fatigue?
- What do I value in my different areas of life?
- What strategies and possibilities do I have to take steps towards the life I want to live?
