Avoiding Work Related Stress

This second of three sessions on personal skills builds on the foundation of self-awareness and sets the stage for creative problem solving. Three main components of a model of stress management are reviewed: stressors, reactions, and resiliency. To help students understand the relationships among these components, use “Force Field Analysis” as an analogy. Lewin's force field analysis suggests that behavior is a product of “driving” forces that push behavior toward one level and “restraining” forces that inhibit or block that behavior change. The resulting behavior occurs because the forces are in balance the driving forces are counterbalanced by the restraining forces. When the forces are out of balance, behavior will change. Similarly, stressors can be seen as driving forces that can create negative reactions by driving the individual toward physiological and psychological dysfunctions. The restraining forces are the resiliency-creating mechanisms that individuals develop. Negative reactions can be counterbalanced or prevented if individuals consciously increase their restraining forces.
