Psychoneuroendocrine investigation of workplace stress effects on allostatic load
Abstract : Chronic stress alters normal biological functioning (homeostasis) and consequently increases susceptibility to conditions like depression, burnout, and cardiovascular disease. The process of regaining stability in the face of these physiological changes is called allostasis, which can become overloaded when exposed to stressful environments over long periods of time, such as within stressful workplaces. Measuring blood chemistry levels and their relations to psychological factors allows for earlier detection of potential health concerns. We are in the process of studying these associations in mental health workers and also in older adults followed longitudinally.
