People in modern society experience stress from multiple sources, concerning their personal wellbeing, family, professional development and so on. This day school aims to provide an overall understanding of the mechanisms, consequences, and management of stress. First, we will introduce key factors leading to stress, and how stress is encoded physiologically on a molecular level. Second, we will elaborate on the real-life manifestations and implications of stress. Finally, we will review and demonstrate some clinical treatments and interventions for mental health problems, such as cognitive behavioural approaches, medical and surgical interventions, as well as other existing techniques to manage stress on a daily basis, including mindfulness.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
