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, Morneau Shepell’s Chief Research and Development Officer for Workforce Productivity and author of The Coping Crisis.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to do the following:
- Develop coping skills using self-assessment, active learning, and evaluation.
- Understand how to cope better with life in order to make better choices.
