Time: 20-30 minutes
In just 20 minutes, The Stress Profile measures all personal traits and lifestyle habits that have been shown to moderate the stress-illness relationship. This convenient self-report inventory provides scores in 15 areas related to stress and health risk:
• Cognitive Hardiness
• Health Habits Exercise (Rest/Sleep, Eating/Nutrition, Prevention)
• Social Support
• Coping Style (Positive Appraisal, Negative Appraisal, Threat Minimization, Problem Focus)
• Psychological Well-Being
• Type A Behaviour
The Stress Profile can be administered and scored in just 20 to 30 minutes. Norms are based on an ethnically diverse sample of 1,111 men and women, ages 20 to 68, from various working environments.
The Stress Profile is particularly useful to clinicians who must evaluate people with physical and psychosomatic complaints. It also makes an excellent health risk appraisal tool within organisational settings (as part of wellness, stress management, and health promotion programs).
