  Slide

 Distress-­‐Prone

 Patterns

 

  By

 the

 time

 you

 reach

 college,

 you

 are

 well

 into

 the

 process

 of

 developing

 into

 your

 own

 person.

 

  There

 will

 be

 much

 more

 to

 learn

 about

 yourself

 and

 the

 world

 during

 your

 college

 years,

 but

 some

 of

  your

 habits,

 likes

 and

 dislikes

 will

 be

 fairly

 well

 defined.

 

 In

 many

 areas,

 this

 and

 actions

 as

 well.

 

 These

 are

 called

 distress-­‐prone

 behavior

 patterns.

 More

 often

 than

 not,

  when

 it

 comes

 to

 stress,

 these

 attitudes,

 thoughts,

 and

 actions

 fail

 to

 solve

 our

 problems

 and

 usually

 lead

  to

 more

 stress.

 

 

  Sometimes,

 we’re

 not

 even

 aware

 that

 we

 exhibit

 these
