User: Compare & contrast eustress & distress

Weegy: Distress is the most commonly referred to type of stress, having negative implications, [ whereas eustress is usually related to desirable events in a person's life.[3] Selye first differentiated the two in an article he wrote in 1975.[3] In this article Selye argued that persistent stress that is not resolved through coping or adaptation should be known as distress, and may lead to anxiety, withdrawal, and depressive behavior. In contrast, if stress enhances one's functioning it may be considered eustress. Both can be equally taxing on the body, and are cumulative in nature, depending on a person's way of adapting to the stressor that caused it.[1] The body itself cannot physically discern between distress or eustress.[12] Differentiation between the two is dependent on one's perception of the stress, but it is believed that the same stressor may cause both eustress and distress.[4] One context that this may occur in is societal trauma (e.g. the black death, WWII) which may cause great distress, but also eustress in the form of hardiness, coping, and fostering a sense of community[13] The Yerkes-Dodson model demonstrates the optimum balance of stress with a bell curve (shown in the image in the top right).[14] This model is supported by research demonstrating emotional-coping and behavioral-coping strategies are related to changes in perceived stress level on the Yerkes-Dodson Curve.[15] ]
