Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of ceramics as an intervention for reducing stress in OT and PT graduate students. A cross-sectional approach was utilized on 28 OT and PT students. Stress levels were determined by a pre- and posttest design, a visual analog scale, the Perceived Stress Scale, and an open-ended question. The results of the study showed a significant reduction in stress for the OT and PT graduate students who painted ceramics.
