As we’ve learned from the week’s readings, stress involves the process of a stimulus or life event that triggers a physiological and psychological response. The effects of stress can be varied as different people handle stress in multiple ways. For this assignment, use personal experiences or create examples to complete the following:
1. Define stress by giving an example and discussing the psychological conflict at hand (the stressor) and its physiological and psychological impacts.
2. Demonstrate your understanding of Selye’s General Adaptation Syndrome model of stress by providing an example of each of the stress stages.
3. Give an example of eustress and discuss how it impacts the body psychologically and physically.
