Stress and Health

Today in class we'll use a couple of inventories to help you understand the role that stress plays in your health and well-being.

First, you'll be asked to complete this inventory: The Holmes-Rahe Stress Scale. Keep in mind, participation is voluntary, and you won't be asked to share your score.

Later in the hour, time permitting, we may complete this Type A/Type B Inventory.
