Title: Stress Among Adolescents Living In Shelters [estresse Em Adolescentes Abrigados]
Abstract: Objective: This study investigated stress conditions in a group of adolescents living in shelters, in terms of the areas most commonly mentioned as stressful events and perceived stress intensity. Methods: Thirty adolescents (both genders, 11 to 18 years-old) living in shelters in the Baixada Santista district (São Paulo, Brazil) were investigated, using the Stressing Events Inventory for Adolescents (IEEA) and the Adolescent Stress Questionnaire (ASQ). Results: High-impact events and stressors were related to school, fi nancial pressures and legal and institutional rules, in addition to concerns about poverty and violence. Conclusion: Stress associated with school environments was identifi ed in the group of adolescents under examination, with family relationships that have already been damaged signifi cantly, underscoring the need for broaderbased investigations into this topic, in greater depth. © 2015, Nucleo de Estudos da Saude do Adolescente.
