SUEHIRO, Adriana Cristina Boulhoça  and  SANTOS, Larissa Muniz R. A. dos. Relationship between stress and social skills in professors in the state of Bahia. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 728-744. ISSN 1677-1168.

This study sought to characterize the stress and social skills of professors in higher education in the state of Bahia. We attempted to verify the relationship between these constructs. To do so, it has been applied the Symptoms of Stress Inventory by Lipp and Social Skills Inventory (HSI) in 152 professors in higher education public and private institutions of Bahia. Participants were engaged in different areas and, in most cases, were male. Thirty-five professors showed characteristic frames phases of resistance and near-exhaustion. In addition, it became clear that the physical symptoms were more present, as well as low social skills in "Self-Control Aggression" and "Coping with risk and self-assertion". There were no significant differences in social skills among Professors with symptoms of stress and Professors without symptoms. Given the relevance of this topic and its implications, it is worth highlighting the need for further investigations.

Keywords : Symptoms of stress; Social competence; Social skills; Higher education.
