Therefore, we also discuss this issue in greater detail in Chapter 3. 4. Stress is a response, or reaction, to some stimulus. 1. 5. The stress response represents a physiological reaction, as defined in the Selyean tradition (Cannon, 1914; Selye, 1956); Everly (1985a; Everly & Sobelman, 1987) has extended this concept somewhat and conceptualizes the stress response as a “physiologic mechanism of mediation,” that is, a medium to bring about a result or effect. More specifically, the stress response may be viewed as the physiological link between any given stressor and its target-organ effect.

If indeed accurate, this conclusion may be due to the fact that stress represents the epitome of mind–body interaction. As Miller (1979) suggests, mere knowledge of therapeutic techniques is not enough. The clinician must understand the nature of the clinical problem as well. Therefore, the reader will find that the treatment section of this text is preceded by a basic discussion of the functional anatomy and physiology of the stress response. PLAN OF THE BOOK The purpose of this text is to provide an up-to-date discourse on the phenomenology and treatment of pathogenic human stress arousal.

See Mason et al. (1995) for a comprehensive review. The Posterior Pituitary Axis and Other Phenomena. Since the early 1930s, there has been speculation on the role of the posterior pituitary in the stress response. The posterior pituitary (neurohypophysis) receives neural impulses from the supraoptic nuclei of the hypothalamus. Stimulation from these nuclei results in the release of the hormones vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone, or ADH) and oxytocin into the systemic circulation. ADH affects the human organism by increasing the permeability of the collecting ducts that lie subsequent to the distal ascending tubules within the glomerular structures of the kidneys.
