The Empowerment Model for Stress Resilience

The impact of chronic stress is a growing public health problem. Current studies have indicated that 60% – 90% of doctor visits are for stress related issues. Other studies show that when incorporating self-care in daily living, the utilization of medical services, health risks and out of pocket costs decrease.

The Empowerment Model for Stress Resilience developed by Chandler Bay Resources, empowers individuals to improve health, take charge of personal health related decisions, lowering costs and learning to partner with healthcare providers regarding health opportunities. The Empowerment Model helps people to understand the difference between “healthy” verses “unhealthy” stress reactions and the negative health consequences resulting from chronic stress. Individuals and professionals will explore the stress response and its purpose, as well as develop an empowered, embracing approach toward their personal experience of stress.

The Empowerment Model focus is on assisting individuals to readily adjust to or recover from experiences previously deemed stressful. This model is accomplished through a variety of approaches that proactively address personal sleep habits, decreased sedentary time, reduction in physiological stress through dietary modifications, the role of giving and receiving support as tools for stress resilience and the development of mindful perception.

The Empowerment Model is developed to guide individuals how to be more responsible for their health and wellness through understanding and practicing 5 components of self-care (sleep, exercise, nutrition, connection/support and mindfulness/perception). Through utilization of this model, self-care will result in lowering medical costs, creating a healthier work environment, better relationships and overall better quality of life.
