Materials and Methods: Quantitative research approach with Quasi Experimental, Non-randomized control group design [Pre-test –Post-test Control group design] was used Total enumerate sampling technique was used to collect data from the 40 subjects who fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were assigned to control group (n=20) and experimental group (n=20).
Results: Findings of the present study revealed that there was statistically significant association of level of stress score in the control and the experimental group with the age, total monthly income of the family, and residence of the study subjects with (p=0.008),(p=0.027), and (p=0.000) respectively, while as no association was found between pre-interventional level of stress scores in the control and the experimental group with other demographic variables like gender (p=0.113), and type of family (p=0.429) at 0.05 level of significance.
Conclusion: The results revealed that there was significant association between the age, total monthly income of family and residence of study subjects with pre-interventional level of stress scores of control and experimental group. Whereas no significant association was found between demographic variables i.e. gender and type of family with pre-interventional level of stress scores of control and experimental group.
