The purpose of this course is to provide individuals responsible for disability management with the information and tools required to support workers who are experiencing stress, chronic stress, anxiety and anxiety disorders. On successful completion of the course, participants will be able to explain stress, anxiety and anxiety disorders to others in the workplace. They will be able to address the impact of stress and anxiety on the worker, support change in the workplace and organization, and outline the benefits obtained when initiatives are taken to mitigate the effects of stress, anxiety and anxiety disorders. Employer obligations and workplace initiatives that can be put in place to mitigate stress and anxiety for all workers will be considered as well as factors that could be barriers or facilitators to individual workers remaining at work or returning to work.
