Stress: Myth, Theory, Research & Applications
‘Stress’ is a rather vague umbrella term which is hard to conceptualize. The term depicts psychological and physiological strain or tension generated by emotional, social or occupational challenges and life events or by experiences and circumstances that are difficult to cope with.
The session will try to shed light on some intriguing questions drawing on evidence-based findings. In which ways can stress be conceptualized and measured? Is there a clear-cut link between stress and physical illness? What role does eustress – as opposed to distress – play for our mental well-being?
At the end of the session, we will look into relevant protective factors and buffers against elevated stress. Finally, you will get an overview of useful stress-management techniques, which will also cover contemporary mindfulness-based approaches.
The talk will be set out in an interactive way, i.e. there will be plenty of time for your contributions and discussion input to share and exchange experiences with others.
