Unit VI Reflection Paper
Throughout this unit, you have learned that certain links exist between emotions, motivation, and stress. In fact, if one
does not handle his or her stress effectively, numerous health issues could arise.
For this assignment, you are to compose a two-page reflection paper in which you examine a current or former stressful
event in your life. You must embrace Selye’s general adaptation syndrome (GAS), and describe your reactions to the
stressful event during each stage. Be sure that you recount the various facial expressions that you displayed as you
progressed through each stage as well. What coping strategies did you embrace to help solve the problem? Additionally,
how was your professional work impacted by the stressor? Furthermore, did you experience additional conflicts with other
individuals as you endured this life trial?
You must effectively examine each of the areas listed above. Furthermore, you may visit the CSU Online Library to
identify a source that provides specific information on how this stressful issue could impact your health, future goals, and
motivation. You must at least integrate the textbook as a source.
Tips for writing your Reflection Paper:
- Introduction: This is meant to give a concise overview of the featured stressful event and is usually one paragraph
in length. In your introduction, you will reveal the featured stressful event that you will examine for this paper.
- Summary: This contains your description of the required areas listed above in the opening statement, including
Selye’s GAS, your facial expressions, coping strategies, professional impact, and relationship conflicts.
- Analysis: In this portion of the paper, you should provide information from the textbook and an additional source
identified from the CSU Library to analyze the impact that the stressful event could have placed upon your health,
future goals, and motivation.
- Conclusion: This summarizes your final reflections for the featured topic. For instance, what implications have you
uncovered during your research that you will apply to future stressful events?
