Stress Management Professional Certification (SMPC)


“Stress is the trash of modern life - we all generate it but if you don't dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life” -Danzae Pace

Stress-related illnesses are forecast to be the leading causes of the global disease burden by 2020  -WHO

The epidemiological evidence indicates that job stress is rapidly emerging as the single greatest cause of work-related disease and injury. It is very evident that negative effects of stress have considerable impact on the learning, work performance and wellbeing of individuals. The extent of loss of productivity due to stress alone runs into billions of dollars across the world. There is a severe shortage of skilled professionals in the area of stress management. ISMA has designed a structured and scientific approach for creating, developing and certifying professionals to contribute in enhancing productivity, promote healthy work culture, harmonious industrial relations and holistic wellbeing of individuals and organisations.

SMP Syllabus:

SMP Syllabus and the programme design have been scrutinized by senior professors from more than 25 major Universities in the country  during the National Conference on Stress Management Professional, November 2013.  

SMPC workshop modules were designed and again refined by the panel of experts during 1st International Conference on Stress Management Professional (ICSMP 2014). Four pilot workshop modules were conducted during first half of 2015 and received positive feedback from the participants.
