The Stress Management Questionnaire (SMQ) is one of the few carefully researched and validated stress "risk" assessment (NIOSH, 1982) currently available for use in employee stress management programs as well as in personal stress coaching and counseling.

The SMQ identifies one's stress "risk" and provides immediate feedback on how stressed one is on 11 stress sales. The Online SMQ can be completed in just a few minutes and provides each person with a Stress Risk Profile.

Upon completing the SMQ, the Stressmastery Guide (41 pp) is downloaded and printed for personal use or for use in a stress management program. The Guide provides detailed information about each scale along with evidence-based strategies for reducing and mastering stress.

Take a"test drive" of the SMQ by clicking the button below. After you complete the SMQ, we will email you a copy of the Stressmastery Guide and a Detailed Report on how you scored on each scale..at No Cost.

Dear Dr. Petersen,

"I would like to personally thank you for creating a great stress assessment tool. As an executive coach, trainer, and team developer, I have searched for a good stress assessment tool for use in our programs. Having scoured the internet for over 10 years, we have found your stress “risk” assessment tool, called the Stress Management Questionnaire (SMQ), to be the best tool for the programs we do with our corporate clients."
