Why is it that some individuals never seem to complain about being stressed? How do they cope with the fast pace of life so well? How do they adapt so readily and easily to the ever-changing business and political environments? What do they do that sets them apart and allows them to build a resilient approach to life?
It may not be what you think. Dr Hans Selye (twice nominated for the Nobel Prize for stress management) spent 40 years looking for the chemical or substance that caused stress only to discover that it is caused by the basic human thought process.
Just being alive creates stress. Anything that happens in your life has the potential for being stressful. But contrary to popular belief, there are two kinds of stress. Without stress you wouldn’t get out of bed. Stressors are what drive and motivate us to get things done. This type stress is called Eustress. But there is also distress (commonly just called stress) which when it is present makes us feel less motivated or capable.
Ultimately it could culminate in either physical or mental illness. Distress can be the outcome of a single stressful event but it is more likely to be a build up of multiple issues that at some point create in a person the belief that they can’t cope. In essence when perceived demands are greater than perceived resources to cope, distress occurs. This is expressed by the following equation:
pD > pR = dS
“If you are pained by an external thing, it is not this thing that disturbs you, but your own judgement about it. And it is in your power to wipe out this judgement - now.” - Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome

“The Stress Processing Report (SPR) is a very real contribution to understanding the cognitive factors in the production of stress. Simply having the diagnostic data from SPR enables people to identify their own stress-related thought patterns, but Human Synergistics have gone further. They have developed a manual that gives people the ability to bring about meaningful changes in their thought patterns, and thus their lives.” - Dr Paul Rosch MD, Past President, American Institute of Stress
Stress Processing Report (SPR)
This programme is not a passive experience. A comprehensive two-day experience on the nature of stress: how we create it and how we can reduce it. The programme uses the Stress Processing Report (completed in programme), a scientifically valid and reliable diagnostic developed in conjunction with Hans Selye, the father of stress management.
The tool allows participants to confront, in a gentle way, the sources of their distress, and to become aware of their potential to change their reactions. Becoming aware of how their thought processes are contributing to stress is the first step in reducing the impact of distress in your life.
