Acute Stress Reaction, Acute Stress Disorder, and Parents of Children with Cancer Liberty University Abstract Research has shown that traumatic stress can be caused by many different factors and how people react to stress can differ from person to person. Factors such as spirituality, religion, personality, temperament, a strong support system and how a person has handled trauma in the past play a role in how a person copes with stress. What may be a minor stressor to one person could cause a stress reaction or acute stress disorder in another (Yeager & Roberts, 2003). Acute stress disorder can be caused by the threat of or perceived threat of death to oneself or to another person (Patino-Fernandez, Pai, Alderfer, Hwang, Reilly, & Kazak, 2008).

Years of extensive research on individuals who have been subject to abuse in their childhood years shows us that there can be a wide variety of negative influences, potentially affecting all aspects of development. The effects of child abuse have impacted seriously on individuals in society. By looking at different case studies and research, we can see that child abuse can come in many forms, and is not just limited to violence.

Students deserve to feel safe at school, however when they experience bullying, the effects can last long into their future.
Children’s behavior depends on their environment around them. Bronfenbrenner (1977) state “according to the contextual model of child development, family is the most important microenvironment for children and has a direct and powerful influence on their personality and psychological health.” Naturally, children need to have somebody to look up to in their lives, but that does not mean that all of their role models have a good impact on them. For the last few years, it seems that kids are not getting enough attention from their parents, because of that child are acting badly like vandalizing other people’s property, drug dealing, and mistreating everyone. Several children behave badly in order to get their parents' attention. Also, the
