Given that interventions for workplace stress have been shown to be effective, and behaviour change can be sustained over time (Veach, Rahe, Tolles and Newhall, 2003), a model that can serve to monitor the medium and long-term effects of both stressors and stress-management interventions should prove useful. After reviewing some familiar concepts in the stress arena, this paper presents such a model, building on existing work (Diehl and Hay, 2010; Ray, 2008; Selye, 1970, 1976; Zubin and Spring, 1977) and it is thought that this adapted model will be useful for management personnel, counsellors, educators, employees, and researchers.
