Summary of Pg, 231-238 The Need for sleep Maslow: when physiological needs are routinely met, people can devote more of their energies to meeting the next levels. Safety Needs Desire for stability Related to creating an environment for living that is free from the threat of danger Include the need for order, predictability, and structure. 9/11 served as a universal and personal life-changing event. Individuals thought the world is no longer a safe place and others cannot be trusted. Common life changes (getting engaged, pregnant, married, divorced, getting hired or fired, beginning a college) can be sources of stress. It is not just the changes themselves that are critical, but certain characteristic features associated with them. Ex. Getting married a positive change, getting a divorce a negative change. The extent to which the individual has control over them is also important. Individuals who feel little control over the negative events in their daily life are more vulnerable to physical/psychological problems.
