Welcome to the Stress Management Center/

Phobia Institute

90% of the U.S. population suffers from some type of anxiety disorder. Any of these can be dangerous to your health.

Financial strain, worries about monetary disasters, and stress over the uncertainties of the economic future – job loss, home foreclosure, bankruptcy, plummeting stock and retirement values - can cause mental and physical breakdowns in work and social lives. These stresses can be as damaging as any severe, debilitating trauma.

Donald Dossey, Ph.D.

Stress Management CEO

PTSD, stress, phobias, shell shock, and burn-out can result from financial worries, terrorist attacks, rapes, muggings, auto accidents, fire, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, divorces, addictions, homelessness. In fact, any intense shock and/or prolonged aggravation and stress, mentally or physically, can cause severe psychological aftershock to the mind and body.

These stresses, unidentified or unattended, can cause loss of proper perspective, poor judgment, ineffective action, and may lead to mental, emotional, and physical breakdowns.

Only scientific treatment and debriefing that is safe, private, predictable and measurable should be considered for reducing symptoms of PTSD. Critical Incident Stress Debriefing methods (CISD) in use today are unpredictable and usually prolong the symptoms or even make them worse.
