Increased stress levels can affect undergraduate OT students’ academic performance, quality of life, mental health, and development of therapeutic relationships. In this survey study, academics and time constraints were identified by students as causing the highest levels of perceived stress. It is important for students to learn to identify stressors and how to manage them so that they can employ adequate coping skills and foster effective therapeutic rapport with clients.
