Acute and chronic stress
Everyone experiences stress in daily life. Traffic, work deadlines, illness, relationship problems – life is full of stressors.
Acute stress is the most common form of stress. It arises from the demands and pressures of the recent past and the anticipated demands and pressures of the near future. Acute stress is exciting and fascinating in small doses, but when it is too much it is exhausting.
Fortunately, most people recognize the symptoms of acute stress. It’s a list of what has gone wrong in their lives: the car accident that dented the bumper, the loss of an important contract, a deadline they must meet, your child’s occasional problems at school, and more.
Since it is short-term, acute stress does not have enough time to cause the relevant damage associated with long-term stress. The most common symptoms are:
Dissociated states in which the child feels that the event is repeating itself.
Stress that is triggered by things that remind you of the event.
