Abstract

The phenomenon of Simple Reminiscence may play an important role in the individual's ability to adapt to anxiety-provoking stressors across the life span. However, a clearly articulated model of the underlying psychodynamics of the phenomenon has not been developed. In this paper, a proposed model of the phenomenon of Simple Reminiscence is presented. The important components of the model-developmental issues, triggers, uses, processes, and outcomes-are interpreted within the context of Peplau's conceptualization of stress and stress adaptation. Implications of the model for future empirical investigations of Simple Reminiscence are discussed.
