    Abstract

    This article reconsiders stress both theoretically and empirically using a Lacanian perspective. It addresses how Lacan’s concepts of jouissance and desire may be employed to provide a rich overlay to transactional models of stress that engages with unconscious aspects of appraisal. In doing so, it challenges the dichotomy between stress and enjoyment.
