A sample of white-collar and blue-collar workers participated in hour-long stress management training workshops that covered the definition and causes of stress, work-related stress, strategies for managing stress, and creation of a personal stress management action plan. Prior to and immediately following each of the workshops, the participants completed a stress knowledge test. Results indicated that the mean stress knowledge pre-test score for all participants was significantly different than their mean stress knowledge post-test score. However, the mean stress knowledge pre- and post-test scores between the white-collar group and the blue-collar group did not differ significantly. It seems that a brief workplace stress management education workshop could improve stress prevention knowledge in both blue- and white-collar employees.
