Notes

Abstract: It has fairly recently become accepted that stress, both objective and subjective, has a negative effect on immune health. A current shift in the literature has led to a focus on the relationship between other behavioral influences with health that may either buffer or mediate the effects of stress. For example, several behaviors may alter the functioning of the immune system, including health practices, drinking and smoking behaviors, as well as affect and various other personality characteristics. Consideration of other moderating variables in the stress and illness relationship is therefore suggested for the understanding of how best to promote good health. Looking to individuals experiencing extremely high stress, the protective mechanism of dissociation becomes of interest. The following is a survey study on a sample of 629 college students via the online social networking website, Facebook. Results indicate that dissociation is likely a mediator in the stress and illness relationship. When perceived stress is included, the relationship appears to grow stronger.
