Secondary stress is caused by addictive maladjustment to the subsequent loss of sanctuary and primary stress. In other words, the accommodation one makes to primary stress becomes the problem. The neuro-biology and chemistry of trauma, threat and stress will be explored and explained. Stress management in this culture often becomes an adjustment or fix to allow the dysfunctional-stressful living to continue. A critical look at family life with its stress induced activities and attitudes will be considered
