Biological stress model. First model. Bystress amdstressors he meant the same
thing.sth that cud put wear and tear on the body. Extreme heat or extremem cold
etc. a lot of stress show that the long repeatedexposure to noxious stressors lead to
death.
4 stages of his model. Stressors.
-factors that alter the impact: conditioning factors. Coping resources. Etc.
-GAS= intervening state of stress.
-behavioural response. Produce heat, gotten sick or died animals. Distress in
humans.
-GAS= sth measured in an organism eg increase in bp.
Seyle:
- his model was very imp. A lot of research in psy, soc mental health. Stressor=gives
rise to stress. A stressor had to have some sorta impact on internal fcning of the
organism. Had to b biological stress response. Eg. Flight or fight response.
Contextual circumstances. Eg. Pple who lose their job develop stress. Was their job
or skill rare so lost their job. So not in every case stressoralcoholism etc.
he didnt take that into account.
-widout the occurance of biological stress. The person cud still develop mental health
problem. Exclude such stressors. Rats in extreme cold u measure bp. Bp not went up
and the mouse died, they didnt take this into consideration.
-stressors may have other consequences other than health outcomes. Pplw cud suffer
edu outcome.
Stress models:
life events= major changes= extensive behavioural readjustments.
-all events are stressful=they said that. U cant compare compare 2 diff life events as
stressors (marriage vs divorce)
- evolution of research. Not common sense to put all life events together.
- theymeasured life events by coming up soc readjustment racing scale.
Navy men whove gone to see the doc . sth stressful .
-from 1-100 watd u give to each of these events.
-those are the events and life changing events that they come up wid people like
urself to come up wid. Death of a spouse is one of the events. #s
-it takes out the contexts. Ure looking at stressors at one grps events. Navy men.
-all life events both positive and negative can cause mental health.
www.notesolution.com
A lot of candidates had events that were excluded from list.
-one grp of men. White men in navy. Psycho problems rather than events
themselves.
-a lot of times are symptoms of psycho problems.
Brown and harris:
-we have to look at undesirable events. More strongly associated wid psychological
problems. Acute negative events but also chronic (more persistant) strains.
-developing major depression. Usual approach was to look at life events. Good and
bad etc.
-u have to look at undesirable not all kind of events.
Problem wid life events.
-a lot of times for many yrs, all operationalize (if u wana measure sth eg soc eco
status. In survey at edu level n income. Mental health researcher measure it by
looking at life events). However the negative events majority of studies v. modest
-pple who have a lot of going on in their livesd have ul be more likely to b developing
more mental health probs.
-4 hypotheses.
The trait hypothesis:
-events vary in stressfulness. All events vary in how stressful they are. How
undesirable they are. How unpredictable and how big they are . therere differences.
Smaller impact wid larger impact stress. Ure diluting the effects together (death vs
stress by line ups etc)
- distinguish negative from positive events.
Differential vulnerability effect.
-not all events are going to have same impact on everybody. Social support.
The context hypothesis:
-context in which stressors happen. Not all stressors are stressful. Divorce leads to
mental health probs, this is not the case. Divorce or death of a spouse can have
positive health effects eg. Sum1 whose abusive. So context matters.
Stress domain hypothesis:
- effect of events depend on history of other events.
-eg. Estimate all types of stressors in ones life. (this hypothesis had the most
support of all)
Engineering stress model.
-big impact on stress models developed later on.
