Bringing together scholars and professionals from multiple disciplines to conduct research and develop interventions for stress prevention and management.
Stress affects physical, mental, and occupational functioning, and can have adverse effects on health and health-related outcomes. Increasingly, the debilitating effects of stress are being recognized by the helping professions and drawn to the attention of the public. Given the pervasiveness of stress and its effects, efforts to understand and manage stress should embrace collaborative, multidisciplinary approaches that build on existing strengths and resources.
The purpose of the Center for the Study of Stress, Trauma, and Resilience at Georgia State University is to facilitate multidisciplinary approaches to produce compelling models for understanding and coping with stress that can be applied to the real-world settings.
