FLORES, Adriana Mayon N.  e  COSTA JUNIOR, Áderson L.. Stress headache the psychologycal handling. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.3, pp. 24-33. ISSN 1414-9893.

The tension headache constitutes the kind of headache which happens more frequently, although its ethiology is still not completely understood. It causes an evitation behavior series that unchains physical, social and psychological disturbances. This study has made a critical literature revision, allowing a better comprehension of this problem and the possible treatments for it. It also intends to develop a methodology for tension headache, able to identify the relationships established among the individual, the disease and the social environment. It concluded that a biopsychosocial perspective, integrated to an investigation plan sustained by a behavioral formulation, is adequate for a more efficient, individualized and systemic intervention.
