Here is a quick yet reliable way to identify the lifestyle, coping, and psychosocial factors that help individuals withstand the adverse effects of daily stress. StressScan is an adaptation of the Stress Profile published by Western Psychological Services and provides targeted information about specific lifestyle and health behaviors that might be contributing to stress-related illnesses for particular individuals.
StressScan has over fifteen years of published research showing significant associations with a wide range of health and organizational outcomes such as absenteeism, job satisfaction, physical illness, job burnout, depression, anxiety, and psychological distress in working adults. A large international normative data base is used to compare lifestyle practices, health habits and wellness practices in working adults.
This validated self-report stress inventory measures critical stress, lifestyle management and coping scales and generates a comprehensive feedback report summarizing results and providing information for optimizing wellness. StressScan is particularly useful in organizational settings-as part of executive/management coaching, stress management training, wellness/health promotion programs, employee assistance and research.
