Categories of Stressors
As described in the chapter stress can be both good and bad. However, when we think of stress we tend to focus on the bad side. The author provides descriptions of both good (i.e., challenge) and bad (i.e., hindrance) for both the workplace and outside the workplace for a total of four categories of stressors. For this discussion, identify one stressor from each of the four categories. Using a current or former workplace (or other) gives an example of when you have experienced these stressors. What was the outcome? What type of strain did you experience? Which coping mechanism types did you use?
