Free A-Level psychology presentation on life changes and stress!

Cement your A-Level students’ understanding of daily stressors with our free presentation!

This presentation focuses on the ways in which life changes can lead to stress and stress-related illnesses.

Through an engaging interactive activity, students are encouraged to consider their own stressors. An animated sequence then lays out the theory behind the Social Readjustment Scale and the research conducted by Holmes and Rahe (1967). Students are asked to consider some criticisms of the method and its findings.

Significant studies into hassles and uplifts by Lazurus et al (1981) and DeLongis et al (1982) are also explored. Engaging discussion questions lead to an evaluation of their merits and weaknesses.
