Stress management for young people - Åben og rolig

Has everyday life turned into a stressful chaos with many demands and a fast pace? We might be able to help you.

We offer a scientifically based group course for you between the ages of 15 and 25 who experience stress or symptoms of stress. 

What are the symptoms of stress?

Stress can affect people differently from person to person.

Frequent symptoms can be:

  • Forgetfulness and lack of overview.
  • Overwhelming thoughts and persistent fatigue.
  • Headache and palpitations.
  • Irritability, sadness and mood swings.
  • Stomach problems and lack of sleep.
  • You withdraw or avoid social events.

You find that no matter how many tasks you get through, you never finish and the demands pile up.

What can you expect from the open and calm stress course?

Open and Quiet extends over 6 sessions of 1,5 hours duration with a small group of a maximum of 10 participants.

On each course you will be taught by a psychologist trained in the Open and Calm strategies: open attention, calm attitude, conscious participation and personal understanding. You gain knowledge about stress and symptoms. You are guided through meditations of different durations, which are one of the primary tools. 

Before you participate, you must complete a short screening, followed by a conversation with a psychologist who, together with you, will assess whether the course is right for you. We also give you the option of two individual interviews where you decide the topics. Rest assured that everything you share is confidential.

We regularly start new courses, so you can start when it suits you.

Download the Open and Calm App with meditation exercises for free

If you experience stress, you can download the app for free 'Åben og Rolig med meditationsøvelser'and different strategies:

Meditation is used as one of several ways to learn the strategies. There is no single definition of meditation, and there are many types and traditions. Regarding Open and Calm it can be seen as a good method to reduce your stress, get some peace and relax. You do not need to have prior knowledge or experience of meditation, and you can also learn the Open and Calm strategies without meditating. 

The focus of the meditations is not on achieving a certain state. With meditations, we are curious as to whether we can consciously examine especially the first two strategies in the method: Being open and aware in an easy way, as well as being permissive for what arises in the moment and, if possible, giving it some space and meeting it calm, regardless of mood or sensation/pleasure or discomfort.
