Stress relief

28th June 1996 at 01:00
A self-help audio pack explaining how to deal with stress is being sold to teachers. Produced by The Royal College of Psychiatrists in association with the Royal College of General Practitioners, its launch follows reports that the number of headteachers quitting their jobs for health reasons has increased by half since 1992.

The programme includes advice on time management, how to manage relationships at work and ensure proper relaxation.

According to Dr Ruth Chambers, the Royal College of GPs' stress fellow, teachers are a particularly stressed group of professionals. However, she adds: "There are always options for someone suffering from stress and it may be that you will have to organise your job so that you are in control of your work, and your work is not in control of you."

Coping with Stress at Work costs Pounds 13.99, including post and packaging, from Stress Pack, PO Box 1, Wirral L47 7DD. Cheques payable to Wendy Lloyd Audio Productions.
