    Description

    Students at the United States Coast Guard Academy have responsibilities and stressors beyond those of traditional university students. However, no data exist to identify what type of stress students recognize in themselves, and, once assessed, what restorative techniques they use to effectively mitigate those stressors. To help understand the phenomenology of stress and its mitigation, students were asked to identify their stressors and evaluate their restorative experiences based on both the factors of the Attention Restoration Theory and psychological benefits of recreation. Results of a factor analysis of benefits related to highly restorative events provided support for the theoretical factors of Attention Restoration Theory. Suggestions to incorporate Attention Restoration Theory in U.S. Coast Guard training are provided.
