The Stress Mastery Questionnaire (SMQ)

The beginning point for all Stressmaster's programs is the SMQ.

The SMQ provides specific information that focuses one's STRESS WARNING SIGNS, STRESS EFFECTS and STRESSORS. Armed with this information coupled with Dr. Petersen's Stressmastery Guide: A Roadmap to Resilience, each person develops a personal plan for change and stress mastery. A complimentary online SMQ assessment is available to qualified professionals who would like to evaluate the Stress Mastery Program and SMQ in greater detail.
