Abstract: The objective was to evaluate the role of stress control training (SCT) in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Sixteen IBS patients were studied, 15 of them female and one male, ages ranging from 22 to 72 years old, all coming from two university hospitals in the State of São Paulo. The patients were divided into two groups, experimental and control. The experimental group was submitted to the SCT and psychological evaluation was made with the application of Lipp's Inventory of Stress Symptoms for Adults, of the Anxiety and Depression Scale (ADS), and the levels of assertiveness and irrational beliefs were surveyed. Results showed that SCT achieved a partial, though not statistically significant reduction of the variables under study: stress level, irrational beliefs, lack of assertiveness, and anxiety and depression levels. Conclusion was that SCT was not effective as an adjuvant treatment for the disease.
