Change Management: Stress and Resilience

Submitted by Maureen Hinkley on December 22, 2009

Change is one constant we all have to confront. As a result, we are susceptible to stress and the common problems it can cause such as interpersonal, health, and organizational difficulties. Dr. Paul Maloney, Visiting Professor in the Industrial and Organizational Psychology program of the Graduate School of Education & Allied Professions, will lead a one-day workshop on Jan. 30, 2010 using case discussions, practice exercises, feedback, and action planning to develop skills for:

  • Applying best practices for managing change
  • Identifying the crisis stages people experience in the change process
  • Clarifying the relationship between change and different types of stress
  • Applying stress-reducing and resilience-boosting techniques
  • Communicating effectively during change
  • Identifying common ways people resist change and how to deal with them
