Abstract

Oden, Melissa Stanford, Women & Stress: Investigating the Female Stress Syndrome. Master of Public Health (Community Health), May 2006, 47 pp., bibliography. Research indicates that women experience long-term effects of stress that appear to be not only different from, but possibly more harmful than the long-term effects of stress in men. This situation creates the possibility of more chronic illness for women as well as the possibility for higher mortality rates. The purpose of this project is to investigate the effects of stress on professional women in Tarrant County based on meanings and interpretations women give to the stress they experience. It will also provide additional information about the effects of Female Stress Syndrome to contribute to the research literature on this topic.
