This study was conducted using a convenience sample of MSW students enrolled in a master of social work program during the Fall semester. Data collection for this study was accomplished by distributing survey instruments in class and online to various course sections in an attempt to assure there was an opportunity for all Part-time, Full-time, and Advanced Standing students to participate.
MSW students reported moderate to high levels of stress on the Perceived Stress Scale compared to the general population.
MSW students who reported three or more stressors had higher psychological distress scores than students reporting none, one, or two stressors. Depression was the stressor associated with the highest level of psychological distress. A total of MSW students reported their "Significant Other" was the primary choice of social support followed by "Family" and then "Friends". A Stepwise Multiple Regression found perceived stress score, negative coping score, number of stressors reported, vulnerability to stress, and positive coping score to best predict MSW students' psychological distress total overall score.
