Abstract: Success in school and overall student wellness are affected by factors such as mental health and interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, among others. This study examined the effectiveness of in-class guidance lessons on stress management skills. Information of this type is typically not dispersed unless individuals are identified as having difficulties (or histories of difficulties), but may serve as an educational benefit to all students if provided in a general education program as a form of primary prevention. In an attempt to examine this, students in grades seven and eight at a suburban private school received six in-class lessons over the course of four weeks in this area. Assessments were administered prior to and following exposure to the lessons in this group, and in a comparison group that did not receive the lessons. The results of these assessments, in conjunction with the teachers' perceptions, indicated that this particular paper and pencil assessment of acquisition and assimilation of stress management skills knowledge was not entirely effective, but perhaps the better indicator of the knowledge acquisition was interest, involvement, and interaction during the lessons. Future research should focus on assessing markers of learning and actual behaviors relating to stress management skills.
