The paper is divided into three sections, focusing on how stress evaluation and intervention are framed in psychological research.

The second section discusses the conceptualization and measurement of stress evaluation in the current literature; the third section, meanwhile, talks about stress intervention programs that have been developed through findings from these studies.

From the Paper:

"The Psychological Stress Model (PSM) presented in Lemyre's (2009) study was adapted as a classic model for stress research, following the flow of "first generation" stress models, which is in the form of Stimuli-Response or S-R linkage. This model looks at different critical components that causes and influences stress affect: stressor(s), coping strategies, social environment, appraisal, stress, and disorder. This linear stress model ultimately shows the linkage between stressors and stress, and determines how stress can actually lead to psychological disorders when it escalates and without intervention (p. 455). Through the PSM, Lemyre posited that in an individual, 'more stressful life events lead to higher probability of developing an illness the following year' (p. 456). This hypothesis is then supported through the PSM, wherein each component is part of a critical path that ultimately determines the eventual development (or prevention) of stress into a psychological disorder.
