Pathway to coping

9 e-Learning modules
For people leaders and employees

Overview

We all experience stress, anxiety and frustration in our lives, and this can affect our ability to function at optimum capacity. In many cases, the coping strategies we acquired at an early age help us to push through these situations. Those who don’t have well-developed coping skills, however, can find themselves unable to address problems, make good decisions, manage their emotions, and be productive—at work and elsewhere.

Pathway to Coping is an online course offered in conjunction with the University of New Brunswick’s College of Extended Learning. It provides the opportunity for individuals to develop their coping skills following a structured developmental program. The course is based on research conducted by Dr. Bill Howatt, our Chief Research and Development Officer for Workforce Productivity and author of The Coping Crisis.
