Often defined as “any change that must be adapted to”, stress is a fact of life.

Considered on its own, change, or stress, can be a positive or negative experience; and while managing stress successfully can have a positive effect on self-confidence, experiencing too much “negative” stress can have a detrimental effect on personal health and well-being, and job performance.

By gaining knowledge and understanding of themselves and their reactions to stressful situations, MRTs can learn how to handle stress more effectively and reduce their risk of its negative consequences.
