CORPORATIONS WORLDWIDE USE POWERFUL TOOL TO BATTLE STRESS

 CORPORATIONS WORLDWIDE USE POWERFUL TOOL TO BATTLE STRESS
 PLYMOUTH, Mich., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- To increase organizational productivity and effectiveness, major corporations, government institutions and education systems in eight countries utilize a unique and highly effective self-scoring stress test. Developed by Human Synergistics, a Michigan-based publisher of personal development and management training materials, the Stress Processing Report (SPR) is designed to counter the high levels of personal stress that detract from job performance and ultimately lead to physical ailments such as heart disorders, chronic fatigue and ulcers. Among the benefits for employers are reduced absenteeism, improved productivity and a higher rate of employee satisfaction.
 Unlike "quick fix" stress remedies that only treat the symptoms of stress such as headaches, irritability and muscle tension, the SPR uses 160 items to determine the root causes of stress for each individual who takes the test. "At Human Synergistics, we operate on the concept that it's not life events themselves that cause problems, but our reactions to those events," said Dr. J. Clayton Lafferty, company founder and CEO. "The SPR identifies your tendency toward 19 styles of thinking that are proven to be directly related to symptoms of strain and stress. Then the Self-Development Guide shows you how to change your responses. Changing your thinking styles in this way can dramatically reduce the debilitating effects of stress on your life."
 Another unique feature of the SPR is that it's designed to allow people to measure their progress over time. After making changes, an individual can order the post test three to six months later and see how their healthier, more productive thinking styles have improved their lives, both professionally and personally, according to Lafferty.
 "The SPR is completely confidential, so the decision to make changes is purely personal," he noted. "But we've found that corporate employees who are offered the test become quite enthusiastic about finally finding a way to improve their personal health and well-being, as well as their on-the-job productivity. In short, everybody wins."
 The Human Synergistics Stress Processing Report kit consists of the 160-item test, a 71-page Self-Development Guide and an instructional audio tape. The kit costs $29.95, and may be ordered by calling toll- free 1-800-622-7584.
 Since 1971, Human Synergistics has been in the business of providing research-based training and development materials as well consulting services. Organizations in eight countries have used Human Synergistics' materials and services to increase effectiveness at the individual, group and organizational levels.
