Abstract


The aim of this study was to examine the impact of a cognitive behavioral group counseling program based on stress inoculation training in reducing post-traumatic stress among a sample of students from Al al-Bayt University. The sample of the study consisted of 16 students who achieved the highest score on a scale for post-traumatic stress disorder. These students were distributed randomly into two groups: experimental group consisting of 8 students (2 males and 6 females) and a control group consisting of 8 students (3 males and 5 females). The researcher used the experimental method; the application of the program took four weeks with two meetings per week. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to know the experimental treatment effect on post-traumatic stress. The results showed statistically significant differences between the experimental and control groups, favoring the experimental group, on all dimensions of the scale. The study concluded that the counseling program -based on stress inoculation training- was effective in reducing post-traumatic stress.
