Need Help Finding Article
« on: December 25, 2011, 11:06:08 PM »
I remember reading an article online recently about the difference between voluntarily engaging in stressful activities like survival training or high adventure activities and being forced to participate in stressful activities like wilderness programs. The article was scientific in nature and talked about stress hormones like cortisol and how the body responds to stress. The article argued that the body responded very differently to the stress depending upon whether it was voluntary or forced, that there were severe negative health consequences to being forced into such stressful situations.

Does anyone know what article I'm referring to and where I can find it? I had been reading a lot of stuff by Maia Szalavitz at the time, but I don't know if she is the author of this article.

Thanks for your help.
