Work/Life/Leadership: Empowering Self and Others
This is the course that will pay for itself many times over! Studies show that stress management education can reduce lawsuits for your organization. Here are some interesting facts provided by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH):

St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company conducted several studies on the effects of stress prevention programs in hospital settings. Program activities included (1) employee and management education on job stress, (2) changes in hospital policies and procedures to reduce organizational sources of stress, and (3)establishment of Employee Assistance Programs.

In one study, the frequency of medication errors declined by 50% after prevention activities were implemented in a 700 bed hospital.

In a second study, there was a 70% reduction in malpractice claims in 22 hospitals that implemented stress prevention activities.

In contrast, there was no reduction in claims in a matched group of 22 hospitals that did not implement stress prevention activities. (Journal of Applied Psychology)

Our 12-Lesson program, titled "Work/Life/Leadership: Empowering Self and Others" is a perfect choice for training VA supervisors, rank-and-file employees, or all of those working in an entire VISN network.

The course is a win/win for everyone involved. The real winners will be those who've served our country--your clientele of US Veterans. The self-help advice in our 12-Lesson program explains how employees can act out productive behaviors, create options for positive change, and help others do the same. This education is NOT like those run-of-the-mill stress management courses you've purchased before! This course includes gems of wisdom that employees can utilize immediately--and the advice works!

Here is how one registrant explains it: "These 12 lessons give you great advice your parents should have taught you--but they didn't know how."

One stressed-out healthcare professional offered this feedback: "The advice on dealing with depression and extreme stress in Lesson Four is right on target. When you're under the kind of stress I work under, it's such a relief to find this quality of sound and reliable advice for self-help. The course is very, very good."

EMPLOYESS APPRECIATE THE CALIBER OF HOPSON GLOBAL EDUCATION COURSES....." These courses are far superior to many we have utilized for our staff members. It's a fact that Work/Life/Leadership: Empowering Self and Others offers good advice, along with practical application techniques. This education is a great investment for the price."...DANA BAKER, educational advisor and EMS professional.
