ABSTRACT

This study was conducted by the researchers to determine the Stress Management Profile of Filipino Seafarers. The researchers employed descriptive survey method, and a survey questionnaire was used as the data collection instrument. The instrument used in the study was validated by the research adviser, mentors and statistician of Holy Cross of Davao College. Frequency, Average Weighed Score, Descriptive Rating were used to analyze the research result and ANOVA was used to analyze the hypothesis. After the statistical treatment of data gathered and based on the analysis of the results, it was found out that the number one source of stress of Filipino seafarers was their missing out of significant family events such as birthdays, graduation, first communications and others. This only manifests that Filipinos are closely-knit family based on its culture. The second source of stress among Filipino seafarers was not having enough time with their family and children. Most Filipinos left their families to work overseas in order to augment their income and send their children to school, and because of this, it deprives them of quality time to be with their family and children. Data also revealed that one of the physical symptoms or manifestation of stress among Filipino seafarers is being unable to go to sleep. Relational symptoms revealed that losing interest in normal activities was also a manifestation of stress among Filipino seafarers. Feeling anxiety was an emotional symptom of stress among Filipino seafarers. It was also revealed that resorting to advice from superiors and other crews was one of the coping mechanisms employed by Filipino seafarers, which was followed by resorting to praying. The researchers agreed to accept the null hypothesis since the computed critical value using t-test yielded a result of 1.734 which is greater than 0.05 level of significance, therefore there is no significant different between the level of manifestation of stress and coping mechanisms employed by Filipino seafarers.
