The ABC's of Stress: A Submarine Psychologist's Perspective


Weybrew has developed the ABC model of stress upon a foundation of nearly three decades of stress research with nuclear submariners. With its connotation as a fundamental or elementary principle of stress dynamics, the ABC model is built upon three basic concepts in learning and vector psychology: Antecedent conditions, Behavior, and Consequences. One of the central features of Weybrew's research is the inclusion of preventive and therapeutic strategies for acute and chronic patterns of stress reactivity. These intervention techniques provided here have heuristic value for the researcher and teacher alike, while being described in language readily understood by the lay reader.
