FIGURE 15.3Hans Selye described the general adaptation syndrome. When a person is
exposed to a stressor, the alarm reaction mobilizes the body's resources. During the
stage of resistance, stress hormones maintain the body's defensive changes, and the
body signs characteristic of the alarm reaction virtually disappear. But, if the stress
persists over a long time, the body's resources become depleted and exhaustion
occurs; the organism can no longer cope and is highly vulnerable to breakdown.
