Welcome to evidence-based solutions for stress and successful adaptation to change.

Regarding stress, Dr. Hans Selye’s name is globally synonymous with creative understanding, rigorous science, and solutions … evidence-based solutions which restore balance, satisfaction and productive wellbeing … for individuals and for workplaces.

Since its founding in 1976, the Hans Selye Foundation has continued to lead in integrating academic and practitioners’ “big picture” understandings of the stressful challenges of “Man Adapting” in a “Future Shock” world.

For the past 40 years, applied research at Dr. Selye’s Canadian Institute of Stress has translated resulting Foundation insights into evidence-based tools and know-how evaluated and refined in clinics and corporations internationally.

♦ The Institute is a federally registered [1979] Canadian charitable foundation ♦
