Description: This presentation discusses research on guilt, self-esteem, coping strategies and stress in college students. The authors used a cross-sectional, correlation study that focused on guilt, self-esteem and three maladaptive subscales in a single model predicting perceived stress in college students. Using Lazarus and Folkman's Stress-Coping model (1984) as a framework, the author hypothesizes that higher levels of hostile guilt and Brief Cope's three subscales of disengagement, substance, distraction and lower self-esteem will account for a significant portion of the variance in perceived stress in students.
