dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine social support, self-efficacy and coping methods in relation to perceived stress in a student sample. Data was gathered from 82 students studying in a Dublin based institution. The data was gathered by means of self reported questionnaires, the general self-efficacy scale, the social support (short form) questionnaire, the brief cope and the perceived stress scale. The analysis showed that there was a significant relationship between perceived stress and self-efficacy, the amount of social support received and the coping methods: denial, planning and self blame. No significant difference was found in the perceived stress scores of full and part-time students or Irish and international students. A significant gender difference in the amount of social support received, emotional support and substance use used as a coping mechanism was found.
