Bibliographic information May 2010, Vol.48, No.3, p.265-274. Illus. 36 ref.
Abstract The article describes the evaluation of a web-based stress management programme designed to improve psychological well-being. A total of 168 employees participated in the intervention. The pre-test was conducted at the time of registration and the post-test upon the completion of the programme. To facilitate analysis, a model was build based on the programme impact theory and a path analysis was conducted. It was found that the majority of participants evaluated the program positively in all sessions. Participant evaluations directly predicted changes in psychological well-being. It is concluded that programmes where participants feel enjoyment and enhance their self-rated capability to cope with stress can be effective.
