The Effects of a Stress Management Course on Counselors-in-Training
Abel, Holly; Abel, Annette; Smith, Robert L.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v51 n1 p64-78 Mar 2012
The effects of a stress management course on the stress knowledge and coping techniques of 101 graduate students in counseling were examined. Participants, drawn from various racial groups, were typically female (79%) and 21 to 55 years of age. Seven of the 8 null hypotheses were rejected. There were significant differences on 6 of the 7 dependent variables (overall knowledge of stress, perceived state and trait anxiety, stress response to positive and negative self-statements, and general and current stress level). The treatment group learned and implemented stress management strategies to better cope with stress. Recommendations and further directions for research are offered. (Contains 1 table.)
