The Perceived Stressors and Coping Skills of Graduate Students: A Development and Validation Study
Journal of Counseling Research and Practice
This article was published in Journal of Counseling Research and Practice.
This article outlines the development and validation of two instruments evaluating common stressors and coping skills as perceived by graduate counseling students. The review of the literature illustrated a need for the development of measures to provide empirical support in regard to the stressors and coping skills of graduate students in counseling programs. Exploratory factor analyses were applied to the two respective scales to evaluate the constructs. Recommendations and limitations are offered to further the development of psychometric properties within the scales.
