This study was designed to compare the effects of two stress reduction programs on selected male and female Black African students, enrolled in a public two-year liberal arts college in Atlanta, Georgia. An additional purpose was to determine if significant differences existed between selected male and female Black African students in their stress levels.

The participants consisted of 15 male and 18 female Black African students. The instrument used in this study for data collection was the Coping Resource Inventory (CRI). The research design for this study was quasi experimental, t-test and two-way Anova procedures were used to analyze the data. The results of the t-test at the .05 level of confidence showed significant difference between pre-and-post test results for the computerized stress reduction program.
