Week Three Assignment Scenario

Stress Patterns

Background

You are a graduate student in psychology, taking online courses. You also have other financial obligations and responsibilities at home. You have felt very stressed over the past 2 years, and you relate much of this to financial burdens and time management for school assignments and other commitments in your life. You have ignored your diet and tend to eat more fast food than you would like. You used to work out at least three times per week, but you cannot seem to find time to get to the gym. You have noticed changes in your sleep patterns and often feel tired during the day. You have had periods of shortness of breath and rapid heart rate. Your mind always seems to be focused on all your future deadlines, but you cannot seem to keep up with it all. You have been having problems concentrating and staying focused.

Problem

Given this scenario, what are some steps you could take to reduce your own stress level? Apply the biopsychosocial model and refer to this week’s readings to address the issue.

Write a 1,200 or more not over 1500 word paper discussing the following:

  • Physiological, behavioral, and self-report methods you would employ to measure your stress level

  • The maladaptive thoughts you identified that could lead to increased stress

  • The evidence-based physiological, behavioral, and cognitive intervention methods you would use to reduce stress

  • The effectiveness of a cognitive behavioral approach in measuring stress and sleep

    Include a minimum of four scholarly references.

    Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines
