ABSTRACT

A Quasi experimental research study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of progressive muscle relaxation therapy on job stress among workers in selected cashew factories, Kollam. The objectives of the study were: to assess the effectiveness of progressive muscle relaxation therapy on job stress among workers in selected cashew factories, Kollam, to find out the association between job stress and selected demographic variables like age, sex, education, marital status, type of family, income, religion and job experience among workers in selected cashew factories, Kollam. Conceptual framework used for this study was based on the General systems theory of Ludwig Von Bertalanffy. Quantitative research approach was selected with quasi experimental non randomized control group design. Simple Random Sampling was used for selecting samples. Sample size included 60 cashew workers, 30 each in experimental group and control group. The researcher assessed the job stress using self prepared job stress assessment scale. After conducting a pretest for both experimental and control group, the experimental group received progressive muscle relaxation therapy for about 20 minutes every day for 20 days. Daily routine programme was given for the control group. Posttest was conducted on the 21st day using the same tool. The findings of the study were, that the mean posttest stress score of experimental group was (37.63), which was lower than the mean posttest stress score of control group (80.1) after the intervention. This indicates that there is significant reduction in the job stress in the experimental group after theprogressive muscle relaxation therapy. The association between job stress and selected demographic variables like age, education, type of family, income and job experience were found at 0.05level of significance. Present study concluded that progressive muscle relaxation therapy was effective in reducing the job stress among workers in cashew factory.

Keywords: Effectiveness, Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy, Job Stress, Workers; Cashew factory.
