Palladian EAP Stress Management Program

Palladian EAP’s statistics along with numerous research studies confirm that stress from work and home is a major source of concern for many employees. As a wellness oriented EAP, we understand that too much stress not only impacts productivity in the workplace, but also can cause anxiety, depression and negative effects on physical health. Our customers consistently tell us that they would like to relieve their stress; however, finding the time to come to an EAP appointment can be difficult. In order to address this concern, Palladian EAP has developed an alternative approach to traditional in-person stress management sessions. Our exclusive program is telephone based, convenient and effective. The program offers the opportunity to learn how to reduce stress and improve your quality of life.

How The Program Works

The Palladian EAP Stress Management Program is conducted telephonically and is comprised of four sessions. The first three sessions introduce a research based coping mechanism for managing stress. The final session asks for feedback from the customer regarding which coping mechanisms they will use, how they will use them, and when will they use them when facing stressful situations in their lives.

Relaxation Techniques

The first coping mechanism introduced is learning how to relax using deep diaphragmatic breathing. Deep breathing is important before or during stress-producing situations. Relaxation is a skill that can be learned and can improve with practice. Not only will you learn why this is important, but how to properly use this breathing technique. The counselor will help you until you can do it on your own.

Physical Activity

In the second phone call, the importance of exercise will be introduced and how there are biological changes in the brain that create a feeling of wellbeing. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to an opiate. For example, the feeling that follows a run or workout is often described as “euphoric.” That feeling, known as a “runner’s high,” can be accompanied by a positive and energizing outlook on life. Managing your Thoughts: During the third session, the EAP counselor will teach you how to identify stressful thoughts and how to manage and redirect them to something positive.

The Challenge

The final session of the program involves feedback from the customer and the development of an action plan.
