The stress in farm family research: validation, hypothesis testing, and other methodological issues.
Proceedings of the NIOSH Symposium on Efforts to Prevent Injury and Disease Among Agricultural Workers, August 25-27, 1993, Lexington, Kentucky. Washington, DC: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1994 Jul; :248-260
The first main component is job stresses. These are the physical, psychosocial and organizational features of the environment in which people work - in which farmers work - in which all of us work. The second main component I want to focus on is acute stress reactions. These are the immediate stressful consequences of thos stressful features of the environment. The third main component is down the line in terms of time - illness or chronic strain. That doesn't happen right away. It develops later. The most important thing I want to point out here though is that this is a process, it is a process over time. We are going to be coming back to that implicity throughout this entire talk, even though we use models that look as though they are simple correlational single time designs. I want to emphasize that.
