Abstract (Summary)

This quantitative study measured perceived stress levels, stress management and self-care techniques among social work graduate students at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) School of Social Work. The sample consisted of 60 graduate social work students currently enrolled at CSULB, the majority of whom identified as female. Participants were asked to rate their feelings and thoughts with 10 statements related to perceived stress levels. Participants were also asked to rate their use of coping strategies with 19 statements related to stress management. Study findings indicate that social work graduate students experience moderate levels of stress as well as utilize a wide-range of coping tactics inclusive of healthy/constructive and unhealthy/less constructive strategies. This study’s findings were consistent with the findings of previous research that explored stress levels and coping techniques among students in higher education.
