  5. 5. ABSTRACT/ SUMMARY In this report we have focused on our topic, Health Psychology; Stress coping and well being. We determined stress along with the mind and body issue. We also studied the ‘Immune System’ and its process and discovered a new branch of Psychology ‘Psychoneuronmunology’. We identified stressors, their types and some diseases related to it. We found a significant change in the phenomenon of before and now. We found that, previously, disease were seen as a purely Biological phenomenon and Psychological factors were of little interest. But, now! Major diseases such as Cancer and Diabetes are chronic illness. Finally we got the answer to: When does a person gets stressed and how?
  6. 6. INTRODUCTION This report focuses on the topic Health Psychology; stress coping and well being. Along with determining stress, we identified stressors and their types. “So Much To Do, So Little Time to do it” The writer has very beautifully assembled the words in the Prologue. This basically demonstrates the factorial picture of the cause of stress. The purpose of the report is to complete the assigned task as well as to discover a new branch of science, ‘Psychoneuronmunology’ We studied the immune system and its process and answer the question: When a person gets stressed and how? The scope of this report is very likely to every individual as all of us experience stress and are also required to deal with it. We form an understanding of the Mind and Body issue and try to relate it also in the real life.
  7. 7. REVIEW OF LITERATURE The prescribed reading guides us through a number of ways: By looking ahead, we study stress and its coping techniques. We analyzed the high cost of stress in the course of stress and examined some theories such as the ‘General Adaptation Syndrome’ model. The subject matter derives by discovering a new branch of Psychology, ‘Psychoneuronmunology’ and by studying the ‘Immune system’ and its process. We also came to know about the state of ‘learned helplessness’ and Identifying the cause of stress and diseases related to it. Finally, by going through the reading, we came to know to resolve the conflict by understanding the concept of the ‘Mind and Body’ issue.
  8. 8. METHODLOGY The topic is divided among the five group members in five parts. The research included the prescribed reading along with taking an interview session from professionals and student. Geographic Segmentation: Karachi, Sindh. Research sample: • Professionals • Students The report is submitted in the form of: • Softcopy (submitted to the C-R) • Hardcopy (submitted to the Instructor) Age criteria: 18-40 years. Socio-Economic Class: A, B and C. Qualitative research: 2 focus group. Quantitative research: Two in-depth interviews. Time Frame: The estimated time was 2 weeks and the task also completed in 2 weeks. Visit: We visited, Sarhandi Hospital, located in Defence View, Phase 3, Karachi.
  9. 9. DATA ANALYSIS The research questionnaire included important questions such as: • What is Health Psychology? • What is stress and its coping? • Describe the Mind and Body Issue? We found out that: By discussion, we found out that the interviewee, who was a professional, accepted the fact that, now, diseases are more concerned with the mind and body issues. Their has been a significant change in the previous school of thought. Earlier disease was seen as a purely biological phenomenon and psychological factors were of little interest. But now, Major causes of death, such as a heart disease, cancer and diabetes are chronic illness.
  10. 10. RECOMMENDATION/SUGGESTION My recommendations in this report are mostly concerned with Health Psychology; stress coping and well being. Understanding the ‘Mind and Body’ issue can prove to be very beneficial for an individual and he may cope up with stress in a better manner. Do not use drugs: While reacting to stress most of the times people use drugs, like smoking and alcoholism. These are deadly diseases. Using drugs may give a relief for a temporary time but may indulge the person in a disease too, so better avoid these activities. Likewise we cure our body, in case of an injury, the same way we also need to heal our mind in a proper manner. This we can only do if we are not in the stage of ‘learned helplessness’.
