Stress Management and Intervention Services

Several brief, social-psychological interventions have been shown to reduce stress and improve mental and physical health. Dr. Slavich can work with your company, university, or organization to help develop and implement a stress intervention program that meets your needs. These programs utilize state-of-the-art stress management techniques and are based on years of scientific research on these topics.


Stress Assessment Services

Stress occurring across the life course has been shown to influence human health and wellbeing. Dr. Slavich has developed several interview and computer-based systems for assessing this stress exposure as a way to understand peoples’ life histories, psychosocial functioning, and disease risk. These systems can be tailored to measure different aspects of a person’s early and more recent life experiences.


Talks and Workshops on Stress and Health

Research on stress and health has advanced considerably in recent years. We now understand what aspects of stress are particularly impactful, how these experiences get under the skin to affect health, and what we can do about these processes to improve human health and well-being. Dr. Slavich can visit your group or organization and give a talk or workshop that addresses your group’s specific interests as they relate to the conceptualization, assessment, and management of life stress.


Scientific Consultation Services

Dr. Slavich has led several large-scale projects investigating the effects of stress on mental and physical health. He can provide expert scientific consultation services to your organization or lab in order to address your group’s specific goals.
