Theoretical background: During the few years many researches were performed regarding the issue of pressures and their consequences. In the literature it is shown that the consequences for pressure are being expressed in physical health as well as psychological health. There are three major approaches to pressure: as stimulus (independent variable), pressure as a reaction (a dependent variable) and pressure as an interaction between the individual and his environment (the interaction approach). Pressure as stimulus According to this approach pressure is an environmental characteristics. There are three factors that cause pressure: a critical event during lifetime, a chronic pressure and everyday nuisances. Some researchers came up with different problems referring pressure. Cox & Mekai (1981), Hobful (1989) claimed that this approach see the individual as a passive object receiver of pressing stimulus. It doesn’t refer to the concept and the situation as an impact factor on coping pressure.
