In house Training

Dr Derek Roger - The Challenge of Change - Growing personal resilience and managing stress
"An extremely practical programme but with a solid research foundation - inspires confidence in the training."
The disrupting experience of the seismic events of 2010-2012 and their aftermath have put people in Canterbury under extra pressure in their personal, family and work lives.

Growing personal resilience may be the key to successfully working through these challenges.

The Challenge of Change programme is a well-regarded 1 day workshop which gives participants the tools to handle change and manage stress more effectively.
Developed and taught by Dr Derek Roger, one of the world's leading stress management experts, it is a practical system that provides effective research-based tools for coping more effectively.

Dr Roger's practical tools and strategies to help people be more productive and healthy are based on his more than 30 years medical experience and ground-breaking research in this area. Before migrating to New Zealand he initiated an innovative programme of research on stress and health at the University of York, drawing on his expertise in personality and psychometrics as well as his clinical experience.

The findings have been published in over 120 journal articles, books and conference papers.
