stress essay

Postby csgillam1 » Wed Jul 20, 2011 3:16 pm

Hi :)

some guidelines here would be very much appreciated! I want to include EVERYTHING! but then I probably would be skimping on depth.

origionally I was going to talk about susceptability, stress in the work place and stratedgies set in place, police/ptsd and action and then stress in generally and coping stratedgies/treatment. But now I have dug out some blurb on women and stress which is quite interesting but am not sure if I will end up with too much content and not enough depth???

thnx Chris

Stick to what you came up with first as it is more relevant

All the best

Thanks Karen :)

The title is really throwing me....I know of the term 'monkey on your back' and I know that 'western society' is referring to developed countries but what the title is actually asking for is throwing me! (surprise, surprise......everyone else seems to ask intellectual questions....I get stuck with the basic stuff.....must be a dodgy neurotransmission somewhere :lol: )

BUT, the whole stress monkey/western society doesn't naturally come up in my essay, am I right in thinking that these terms need to be related back to the title, it's easy enough to slip in western society but wouldnt I have to explain the analagy stress monkey???

Ok basically stress is costing millions of pounds to the national economy multiply this by the the number of countires in Western sociey it is billions, through sick days, this is the monkey on the back, so what are the causes of sress and what can be done about it. Also some stress is good, estress, s so you do not want to get rid of it all together but you want to support estress but not negative stress. To answer the question also look at the assessment criteria, as this tells you what in the body of the essay you need to cover, under that title, make sure that you cover all of this. There is also info on what you need to do for a pass merit and distinction essay use this as well.

Does this make more sense?

Yeah, you have put the title into something more tangable (for my wayward understanding anyway!) The criteria seem straight forward enough causes of stress/treatments, I just wanted to make sure that I was connecting it to the title, no time for resubs.....this essay needs to be in pronto!!

Thank Karen :D

To get you ready for university we have to make you think around things or when you get there you would be floored. I know it is hard now, but I promise you will thank us for it later when you meet other Access Students who have not come through us and have no idea what is going on, you will be the ones who get the 2.i's and firsts not them!

All the best

90% of our students get places at university , try and find out the real numbers at most other places and you will not get real numbers, this is because the DLC course is hard and the unis know it and take our students on, so yes it is a battle, but one which will get you a place and when you get there it will just like water off a ducks back, because you can reference correctly and can write essays to the standard they expect, work independently and you will know your stuff, not a mean feat! I am so proud it be involved in all the students who come on here and what they achieve. This sounds sick but I mean it!

All the best
