3 Classes of Stressors
- SLEs - acute, last for only a certain amount of time, transitions, turning point - have a
distinct onset and offset
- Chronic Stressors/Demands - 4 types, relatively enduring character
- Daily Hassles - micro stressors, little things that wreck your day and wreck your mood
e.g. stepping into a puddle, traffic jams, lineups, messy roommates, slow internet,
parking ticket, slipping on the ice - can be cascading problems
Interaction Between These Things
- the death of a child can cause marital discourse
- people who have a disease may have flare-ups during stressful life events
- Stressors ----------> illness, disease, accidents, poor health
- there is a significant relationships between the experience of stressors and adverse
health outcomes
- stressors make you vulnerable
- stressors account for about 10-12% of the variance in any of the 4 outcomes
- doesnʼt explain enough about the variability in these outcomes and what that variability
is due to
Need to bring other variables in order to explain more
1. personal resources/coping strategies - constitutional strength/genetics - biological
response - personality
2. social resources
- stress itself is important
Model
- model begins with 3 mains stressors, which can lead to stress/distress
- if this stress continues, you become vulnerable to full-blown illness/disease - you
adopt the sick role
- personal resources (line between stressors and stress) - people with better or more
personal resources will be cushioned from stress on the heels of their exposure to
stressors - this is called stress buffering
- social resources (line between stress and adverse health outcomes) - people who do
experience stress, will be cushioned from these adverse health outcomes by social
resources
- there is a vulnerability of exposure to stress with poor personal resources and there is
protection for those people who experiences stressors in the context of high personal
resources
