Quantity and Form of Lifetime Stress Accumulation as Predictors of Current Mental Health

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

An established body of sociological research has documented association between various quantitative measures of exposure to social stress and health outcomes. Increasing attention to a life course perspective has stimulated research on lifetime cumulative stress. The present study extends this approach by specifying the form of stress accumulation trajectory as an additional predictor in conjunction with the cumulative amount of stress. Data are from a community-based sample of 1502 older Miami-Dade County Florida residents aged 45 to 93, half of whom live with a physical limitation. Outcomes include the CES-D depressive symptomatology index and a CIDI-derived measure of 12-month psychiatric disorder. Using lifetime retrospective measures of the occurrence of 41 major and potentially traumatic life events employed in a community-based sample of older adults, results from growth mixture modeling of latent trajectories of accumulation and multiple regression analysis support the interpretation of independent effects of quantity and form of lifetime stress accumulation as predictors of current mental health.
