AWARENESS

Stress in modern life is inevitable. The factors that cause stress  and crisis states of the personality are becoming more and more numerous and diverse in nature.

Gradually, it becomes increasingly clear that not famine, earthquakes, germs and cancer, but man is the greatest danger to man…

That is why it is most desirable that knowledge should be expanded to such an extent that people can understand from where the greatest catastrophes threaten them. Too many primary things are deformed – sexuality, education, social climate, human values, our inability to communicate. Human contact is falling apart. The Crowd and the Mass replace the conscious Individual. The traditional model of human relations is showing signs of change in a number of directions. The biggest changes occur in the healthiest and strongest relationship – in emotional mental health.

On the other hand, the mechanisms of development of emotional stress and various stressful conditions are becoming increasingly clear. This enables targeted prevention, control and treatment of stress and its consequences. A main factor in the fight against stress is the personality and the degree of its anti-stress resistance. Factors arising from the objective conditions, the social environment at work / lighting, loud noise, temperature, unusually fast pace, global alarming changes caused by multi-layered factors that disrupt human-to-human interpersonal relationships should not be neglected.

As for the role of the family environment, it is necessary to look for psycho-social incentives to create a good family atmosphere, to reach maximum humanization of the family, to harmonize the interests and individuality of each family member.

Despite the flexible schedule that nowadays allows us to mix home and work duties, many parents play more of a “supporting role” in raising children. Many parents are torn between work and home and end up not being able to adequately handle both responsibilities.

In modern life, associated with dynamic rates of development of society, the emotional stress state is significantly increasing and covers all age groups.

The formation of the Self in early childhood builds the soul life of the moral personality.

Research shows, however, that significant changes in personality also occur after childhood and practically throughout the entire life path. A specific place in a person’s life is assigned to the periods of stages of personal development, the period between childhood and the world of adults .

In this regard, the child’s optimistic attitude in the future largely depends on the atmosphere in the family, on our perspective on the world.

In other words, a family environment characterized by cohesion and a high degree of empathy significantly reduces the likelihood that a potentially stressful event will be evaluated as such.

How the individual/family copes with or adjusts to a given crisis depends on whether family roles have been fulfilled adequately. What are the expectations in the family for the person in crisis? How to apply the skill to correctly analyze the model for resolving personal internal-external conflict? How to assess personal emotional mental/crisis behavior and the emotional support needed in a supportive and motivating environment? Each person functions as a family member primarily by conforming to other members’ expectations of their role performance.

Family life is a series of actions and reactions, in which its members continuously influence and are influenced by each other.

People want peace, happiness, balance, and beauty. A great program, if it wasn’t too often done just the opposite. To find them, it is enough to start from the beginning and learn to understand ourselves.

MAIN MEDIATORS OF STRESS

• Emotions

• The relationship between the person and the environment

• The process of thinking

• Environmental conditions in the family and social/work environment.

Stressful factors in emotional and mental health are presented in the following groups:

v Personal: parenting, effects of parenting stress, contagion stress in the family environment, effects of the stress of the work environment on parenting and partner relationships, conflictual family relationships, the degree of vulnerability and sensitivity of the personality, social relationships.

v Socio-economic: rapid changes in social structures, migration, urbanization and related to them alienation and socialization. The concept of “urbanization trauma” is related to a lack of time, and information overload, which imposes a new dynamic stereotype and new adaptive mechanisms and can lead to a disturbed balance of the body’s adaptive abilities.

v Professional: stress at work, hard and tiring work related to physical and psycho-emotional tension, giving rise to responsibilities, fear of dismissal and unemployment, lack of work, or impossibility of realization.

v Adults: children and adults in the stages of their development, combined with the more frequent conflicts between parents and children in this period, are an essential moment for the emergence of emotional stress among students.

The most important resource of the social environment is social support. In the most general sense, all social relationships that reduce stressful impacts and contribute to an individual’s mental well-being are called social support. Social support is an interactive process of information transfer, mutual influence and change. By its very nature, it is information that supports people in believing that they are cared for and loved, that they are respected and valued, and that they belong to a network of communication and mutual obligation. This support, especially in a situation of human-derived need, included in the individual’s immediate social environment, as well as by members of the wider community to which they belong, can reduce the intensity of stress.

In the WORKING STRUCTURE of Project SMR, the output variables (consequences) of stress are presented, which are destructive mental and physiological effects of stress on the individual and are the subject of analysis of many studies.
