Thank you very much! I will review it, listen to it many times. I liked all aspects of it... except at the end, when the Professor states leaving us his email address: It cannot be seen, his picture is on the top of it while he is stating that. I liked his tone of voice: very calm, assertive, and directive. Thank you!

I enjoyed the course so much that once I started, I couldn’t stop until the end. The strategies provided by the course instructor are very helpful and easy to implement. I particularly enjoyed the guided relaxation technique at the very beginning. Now I can differentiate between the sensation of tension and relaxation.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Prof Joorden’s relaxed but knowledgeable approach was just what I needed to keep me engaged. Coping with COVID has had its challenges for me and Prof Joorden’s perspective and his take on the impacts the restrictions were are facing right now is having on all of us was beneficial.
I'm glad I found this course. This has been a hard year and as a lifelong sufferer of anxiety it has been extra tough. It helped to remember that there is science behind how and why your body reacts the way it does to stress, specifically the news, and that there are solid, conscious steps you can take to manage it.

Even though I am a psychology graduate and heard these tips from news and other mental health professionals before, this course really convinced me with scientific evidence why we should try these tips. Thanks Dr. Joordens! (P.S.: Dedication to healthcare workers was really thoughtful and affective.)
