Duluth, GA/ November 11, 2011 – ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved, nationally accredited, distance training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care and education workforce, offers educators the course PROF100: Stress Management for Child Care Providers to teach educators how to improve patience, organization and responsiveness in the early education environment.

Research indicates that the potential negative effects of stress in child care providers include, but are not limited to, poor judgment, irritability, insensitivity, impatience, forgetfulness, and overall lower quality experiences offered to children in their care. CCEI’s course provides an overview of the effects of stress on child care providers and recommends techniques for coping with and managing stress to improve professionalism and jobsatisfaction. Participants will learn to define stress, identify sources and symptoms of different types of stress, and identify a variety of stress management techniques.

“As professionals, we all encounter stress at one time or another. One key to handling it properly is to identify it early on and use strategies to deal with it,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “CCEI’s Stress Management course provides strategies to identify and deal with stress in the early childhood environment.”
