Increasing Paramedic Students' Resiliency to Stress: Assessing Correlates and the Impact of Intervention
Porter, Shirley; Johnson, Andrew
College Quarterly, v11 n3 Sum 2008
This pilot study focused on paramedic students in the final year of their college program. Using a randomised controlled pre-test/post-test design, this study sought to determine whether perceived peer support, negative attitude towards emotional expression, and specific coping processes, would be significantly predictive of levels of self-reported psychological distress and burnout symptomology, and whether a group counselling intervention could be utilized to influence change in desired directions. Significant correlates were identified and a number of interesting trends emerged that underscore the need for further research in this area. (Contains 5 tables.)
