Author(s): K Selvi and Dr. S Indira
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of progressive muscular relaxation technique on stress and anxiety among women students. To achieve the purpose of these study thirty women students were selected from JBAS College for Women Chennai, University of Madras within the aged range from 18 to 25 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two equal groups of 15 each, such as experimental and control group. The experimental group participated in the progressive muscular relaxation training for six weeks, training session for thrice in a week, each section lasted 30minutes and the control group did not participate in any kind of training programme apart from the daily activities. The selected variables such as stress and anxiety were measured by using Spielberger (1979) and Everyly and Girdano’s (1973) Questionnaires. The subjects of two groups were tested on selected variables prior and immediately after the training period. The collected data were analysed statistically through analyze of covariance (ANCOVA) to find the significance difference. The 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the level of significance difference, the result of the study showed that systematic practice of six weeks progressive muscular relaxation training programme were significance differences on selected criterion variables such as stress and anxiety among women students.
