This training module was developed for Michigan direct support professionals interested in learning about stress management. Although the stress-relief industry would like us to believe that stress on the job is “abnormal”, it’s really not! Stress is a natural part of the workplace. How we deal with it and with what attitude we face challenges will determine how well we fare in the battle against stress. Remember, that stress management is not only your employer’s responsibility, but also the responsibility of the worker.


1) Understand what stress is.
2) Learn the difference between “good” and “bad” stress.
3) Identify causes of stress.
4) Develop awareness of the signs of stress within ourselves.
5) Identify ways to relieve stress.
