Rudina Shkulaku

Abstract


This aim of this paper is to establish a theoretical approach of student’s stress issue. This article provides an overview of the literature regarding the definition of stress, the sources of student’s stress, and a summary of the main academic stress. This theoretical article also highlights and explains the importance of the studies undertaken in this area with the aim of obtaining a better knowledge of the sources of stress among students and the strategies to counter-attack it. This paper explains some theoretical models that analyze stress in terms of resources conservation and recovery of the individual. It presents some of the main instruments that are used to measure the degree of student’s stress. Also, this paper studies the issue of stress in the context of academic performance. The novelty that this article brings consists of the emphasis on the importance of increasing the focus of the study of student’s stress on the students in our country (Albania). Hence, this is a starting point for developing policies and coping strategies to reduce stress on students. Also, this is in a view of increasing student’s performance and their academic achievements. This type of approach has many benefits, especially in research, with the possibility of finding new ways to explain these psychological issues. However, I discover this theoretical approach to be useful, by combining the resources on stress from foreign literatures and literatures in our country, Albania.
