Stress Management: Mastering Your Emotions


Stress Management: Mastering Your Emotions


Stress is the “psychological, physiological and behavioural response by an individual when they perceive a lack of equilibrium between the demands placed upon them and their ability to meet those demands, which, over a period of time, leads to ill-health.” (Palmer, 1989)

This course will teach you positive psychology, including everything you need to know about emotions so you can overcome your fears and limitations and become the type of person you really want to be. Emotional Intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express your emotions. You’ll learn what emotions are, how they are formed, and how you can use them for your personal growth. Whether due to recent stressful circumstances like the Coronavirus or any other trauma or daily stress, you will learn how to manage your stress level, detach from negativity and turn it into productive fuel.

This class will teach you why you are wired to focus on negativity and what you can do to counter this effect. You’ll also discover how your beliefs impinge upon your emotions. You’ll understand the roles your body, your thoughts, your words, or your sleep, play in your life and how you can use them to change your emotions. You’ll also learn how to condition your mind to experience more positive emotions.

We will discuss how to use your emotions as a tool for personal growth. This class is a great guide for life, how to observe emotions such as fear or depression and understand how they work. You’ll then discover how to use them to grow by creating a different pattern of behavior so you can find happiness and success in your career and personal life.



All assignments must be completed in order to receive your course completion certificate. Course completion certificates will be uploaded in a shared folder on Google Classroom, and you will be able to download your certificate. If you need your certificate earlier, before class end date, you MUST let us know at least 1 week in advance. You can receive your certificate as early as 1 week after class has started, as long as you complete all required assignments.



Attendance during the scheduled Zoom sessions is mandatory and we will be taking attendance! If you do not attend these, you will not receive a course completion certificate. Other than the Zoom sessions, you will be free to work whenever you want, at your own pace. You will have 4 weeks to complete all course requirements.



This class will consist of readings, videos and assignments and posted on Google Classroom and a few scheduled Zoom sessions (Zoom is a video conference app). Both of these platforms are free and easy to use. You will be invited to join Google Classroom about a week before class starts. Check your junk mailbox, as invitations to join Google Classroom sometimes end up there. Please make sure you register for the course with a valid email address, since this is where you will receive an invitation notification to join Google Classroom. Your email has to be Google Classroom compatible, so it’s best if you use gmail, hotmail or yahoo. If you do not receive a notification, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact us.

There is NO pre-assignment for the online class. You might however be asked by your instructor, a few days in advance, to prepare a little bit for the first zoom meeting. The course syllabus, all readings and assignments will be posted on Google Classroom before the first zoom meeting.

You will attend the Zoom sessions by going to and clicking “Join Meeting.” You will then enter a meeting ID number that will be provided to you. You can join via a computer, iPad or phone! We would prefer to see you, but if you do not have a camera on your computer, that’s ok. You can join via audio only. There is also an option to call in from your phone, in case your computer audio has any trouble connecting.
