Introducing the First Scientifically Based, Stanford Tested, Stress Management Program, Stress Free for Good


SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- February 8, 2005 -- Stress Free for Good authors, Dr. Fred Luskin and Dr. Kenneth R. Pelletier, spent years at the Stanford University School of Medicine developing ten “LifeSkills” for eliminating the stress and anxiety that occur in daily life. These practical exercises have been honed and tested among a diverse group of Americans and are now compiled into a new book called Stress Free For Good. The LifeSkills provide a foundation for living a healthier life and they offer the tools for attaining emotional competence.

Stress Free for Good author, Dr. Fred Luskin, achieved groundbreaking results when he was hired by a major Fortune 100 company to turn the tide of decline in employee productivity due to stress. Over the year of the project, Dr. Luskin used the unique LifeSkills to:

-- increase sales and productivity across all groups of advisors by 25%

-- decrease stress levels of the participants by 29%

-- increase positive emotional states of the participants by 24%

-- decrease trait anger of participants by 13%

-- increase quality of life by 10% for the participants

-- increase physical vitality of the participants by 9%

LifeSkills from Stress Free for Good were applied throughout the training (Dr. Luskin’s previous book, Forgive for Good was also used) and the program administrators concluded that stress management significantly improves well being and productivity. There was a profound improvement in stress levels and quality of life for financial service advisors participating in the program.

NOTE: This is a summarized version of the executive summary and test results. For the report in its entirety, an interview with Dr. Luskin*, or a copy of Stress Free for Good, please contact Laina Adler at HarperSanFrancisco.

*Upon request, a program administrator from the Fortune 100 company will be available to discuss the benefits of this program.
