Adentan Municipal Assembly Heads of Department recently benefited from a two-day capacity building program on stress, temperament, and anger management. The program, organized by the Psychological Institute, took place at the Thea Hotel in Ashalley Botwe.
The primary objective of the training was to strengthen the participants’ ability to manage stress and temperaments effectively. The resource person for stress and depression denial, Madam Gloria Sarkodia, provided valuable insights on stress management techniques and how to assist colleagues in overcoming stress- related challenges. She urged participants to maintain a healthy mindset and not allow stressors to disrupt their productivity both at work and home.
During the training, Madam Sarkodia highlighted various causes of stress, including tremors, loneliness, lack of self-confidence, and irresponsible behavior. She emphasized that individuals with clear minds can transform these stressors into positive outcomes.
The second half of the training was led by Dr. Innocent Adamadu, who provided a comprehensive explanation of temperament, its scientific basis, and the different types of temperament exhibited by individuals. Dr. Adamadu explained that everyone possesses a combination of temperaments and outlined four maintypes: Popular Sanguine, Powerfully Choleric, Perfect Melancholy, and Peaceful Phlegmatic.
The Municipal Chief Executive of Adentan Municipal Assembly, Hon. D.A Nii-Noi Adumuah, expressed gratitude to the organizers and Heads of Department for their participation. He believed that the training session would have a positive impact on everyone involved, enhancing their overall well-being and productivity.
The capacity building program facilitated by the Psychological Institute aimed to equip Adentan Municipal Assembly Heads of Department with the necessary tools to effectively manage stress, understand their temperament, and develop strategies for anger management.
