Stress management in second-year bachelor students
Podveská, Lucie ; High, Radka (advisor) ; Vozková, Anna (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with stress management in second year university students. In the theoretical part, the thesis focuses on theoretical knowledge, i.e. the definition of stress, what stressors cause it, stress on campus, i.e. what stressors affect students in higher education, and also prevention and the actual methods of stress management. The practical part focuses on the actual research part, which I conceived using a semi-structured interview and its subsequent processing using open coding. The research sample consisted of a total of eight female students. The main objective itself is broken down into several sub-areas and these are how students perceive stress, when students experience stress, how stressful students perceive studying, what methods students use to cope with stress and how overwhelming studying is for students. Research shows that students often use methods found in the literature, but often without knowing that these are directly recommended methods for coping with stress. Students also defined stress as distress, but also eustress. How stressful studying is for students often depends on the discipline they are studying. And as the main and biggest stressor that occurs for students is the academic one. KEYWORDS Stress, stress managment methods, stressors, academical stress
