A Framework for Preventive Stress Management

Stress Management Framework

The above figure explains that the three stages of prevention are primary, secondary and tertiary prevention.

Primary Prevention: Primary prevention is intended to reduce, modify or eliminate the demand or stressor causing stress. True organizational stress prevention is largely primary in nature, because it changes and shapes the demands the organization places on people at work.

Secondary Prevention: Secondary prevention is intended to alter or modify the individual's response to a demand or stressor. People must learn to manage the inevitable.

Tertiary Prevention: Tertiary prevention is intended to heal the individual of symptoms of distress and strain. Tertiary prevention is therapeutic, aimed at arresting distress and healing the individual.
