Stress erodes sleep quality and mental focus, leaving its victims impatient, irritable, fatigued, and prone to overeating and substance abuse. Prolonged stress adversely affects immune system function and worsens conditions such as chronic pain disorders, diabetes, and heart problems. Mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder, are also linked to serious problems involving stress. As stress levels in adults rise, so do those in children and adolescents who struggle to cope with worries about family and school.
Stress-Related Disorders Sourcebook, 4th Edition, provides information about the origins and types of stress and describes physical and mental health disorders that may develop during and after stressful situations. Suggestions are included for managing aggressive driving, caregiver stress, occupational stress, and stress related to events such as economic hardship and return from active military duty.
