Understanding your Response to Stress

The stress continuum model is the foundation for the Stress First Aid (SFA) model and was developed for helping workers in high-stress occupations. The stress continuum model is a way to visualize a stress response and help identify signs of stress early on and continuously. The continuum is divided into four parts (four colors) and recognizes that stress responses land on a spectrum based on preparedness and resilience. The following diagram is adapted from the National Center for PTSD: Stress First Aid Model and also incorporates actions to take based on where a stress response falls on the continuum.
