Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to examine the effects of a brief stress management intervention on depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and aggression among Korean male college students. Design and Methods: In a repeated measures design, participants were assessed before, immediately after, and 3 months after the intervention. Data of 40 experimental and 32 control participants were analyzed using linear mixed models. Findings: There were significant time-by-group interaction effects for depression and trait anxiety, but not for state anxiety, suicidal ideation, and aggression. Practice Implications: The intervention has long-term effects for depression and trait anxiety. Future research should involve a randomized controlled trial on a larger scale.
