Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This efficacy study examined the impacts of an evidence-based stress-management program on emotional self-efficacy and well-being in elementary schoolchildren. Preliminary data collected from 176 fourth to sixth graders showed that emotional self-efficacy significantly correlated with and predicted life satisfaction. Age was unrelated to emotional self-efficacy; there was a significant difference between fourth grade and sixth grade in the emotional self-efficacy but not life satisfaction scales.
