"There are many factors that influence stress levels and psychological responses to stress situations. Although stress response is not the only determinant of a person's feelings, it is an important part.

"Stress is an interdisciplinary concept that includes a variety of emotional and physical reactions, as well as behavioral and cognitive changes. While stress can be construed as an environmental stressor, it also includes internal processes. For example, stress induced by the experience of chronic poverty, for example, can play a role in the development of disease or disorders. Chronic stress also may undermine physical and mental health by inhibiting the immune response or by inducing illnesses such as depression and anxiety, among other causes. The present findings suggest that socioeconomic status plays a significant correlation with the psychological burden of stress." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"In a recent study, findings provide preliminary evidence that in families with psychological problems, and particularly a parental history of trauma, stressful life events such as major transitions are associated with more internalizing symptoms and a higher risk for depression for a young adult." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"[Self-efficacy moderates the link between stressors and motherhood responsibilities on adolescent girls' involvement in family-focused preventive health practices; specifically, family- and gender-focused preventive health practices (e.g., breastfeeding and vaccinations) to boost their perceived self-efficacy. Although self-efficacy had little impact on the relationship between negative reinforcement (support) and family preventive health behaviors (e.g., noncompliance), the current study illustrates that supportive interventions (in this case, family self-efficacy messages that encourage mothers to be supportive to their adolescent daughters) can help adolescents feel empowered to take up preventive health practices in the name of strengthening the family unit and nurturing children (Schniech et al." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"The present results do not confirm that chronic occupational stress is related to cardiovascular disease and/or its risk factors. Rather, the findings are consistent with the idea that stress affects cognition. On the other hand, studies with a short follow-up time frame and low number of subjects are limited and should be interpreted with caution." - Anonymous Online Contributor
