  • OP Olagunju Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye Ogun State, Nigeria


The study examined some psychological and counselling strategies in the management of stress among working women. To achieve this objective, an opinionaire titled Working Women Stress Opinionaire Scale (WWSOS) was developed and validated by the author. One hundred working women were randomly selected from various organisations in Ogun State to serve as respondents. Data collected from the respondents were analysed using chi-square to test the hypotheses. The results were positive for religion, occupations, educational qualifications, working conditions and working with the bosses. These findings were discussed and suggestions were given on possible ways of managing stress among working women.
