The causes of stress in Michael life are the divorce, the joint custody and a possibility that he might lose his job. In essence, Michael is going through some major changes in his life with not much time for adaptation and with no time for recovery. Although, these changes are negatives, they contributed an enormous amount of stress that necessitate adjustment.
Stress has negatively affected Michael’s health as a result of his ability to deal with life changes and impairs his performance. Michael started experiencing chest pains as well as panic attacks; fearing that he is going to die. Pain is the body’s warning signal, therefore, Michael should consult a cardiologist to rule out medical causes for the chest pain. Once the cardiologist determined that stress as well as multiple life changes are the cause of Michael’s chest pain; he will be imperative for him to learn healthy ways to reduce his stress levels and increase his ability to cope under stress.


The causes of stress in Jennifer’s life are very complexed. she is having frustration of commuting, she is also dealing with a miscarriage and Antonio’s parents pressuring her to have another pregnancy; her mother had passed away about two years ago, and now her father is in a deteriorating stage where she is has to make decision to send him to a skilled nursing care facility since she will not be able to take care of him. Jennifer is experiencing multiple approach-avoidance conflict. All those issues presented in front of her have their negative and positive side. From the information read, Jennifer is not being active in dealing with her stress; she is paralyzed with indecision.

Jennifer’s health has been negatively impacted by stress. In the last six months, Jennifer visited her physician and has been complaining numerous times of headaches, backaches, and indigestion. Stress is also affecting her performance at work; she is not trying to overcome her stress and finding solutions because she is in denial. A healthy way to resolve her conflict is to know that she has a choice and accept her locus of control.
