Represents the integration models W. Cannon and H. Selye, considered clinical-psychological point of view as a special psycho-physiological state of readiness (V. Uexkuell, 1963). This refers to a person's willingness to extreme, stress factors, in which the transition of psycho-emotional readiness alert bodily. The latter is a set of characteristic physiological reactions to stress, driven not by reason, and affect. If the purpose for which intended readiness is not achieved and appropriate actions are delayed, something like the condition becomes chronic. Associated with maintaining its physiological changes result in overstress and damage. For example, long-term increased secretion of gastric juice - to improve the appearance of acidity and stomach ulcers; constant arteriolar spasm (transient hypertension status) - to persistently elevated blood pressure (hypertension).

A similar picture emerges when it becomes impossible to permit ready (due to displacement or loss of motive). In other terms, it can be described on a physiological level as a consequence of chronic mental stress and psychological levels - syndrome suspense.
