Profiles of Stress Level among Bogor Counseling Car Visitors


The aim of this current study was to identify profiles of counseling car visitors in Bogor. The data used in the study were primary data, using the self-report method. Data processing and analysis were established using descriptive and inferential analysis. The visitors to the counseling car service were chosen as participants. This study involved 142 participants with 54.9 percent males and 45.1 percent females. The average age of the participants is 34.13 years. The average stress score of visitors is 33.35. As many as 57 percent of the participants were reported to have normal stress levels, however, 9.1 percent of the participants were in severe and very severe stress levels. The results of the different tests showed that there were no differences between male and female visitors in age and stress scores. There was no significant correlation between age and stress score. This means that being older is not always more stressful. But, there are fluctuating movements of stress in every stage of life. Stress from early adolescent visitors was higher than from middle adolescent visitors, but stress in middle adolescent visitors was lower than late adolescent visitors. However, the stress level of early adult visitors was higher than middle adult visitors. This means that there may be a lower stress score in the late adult stage, but the score can fluctuate in the adolescent stage. The counselor uses psychoanalysis to help visitors solve problems they have experienced. For visitors who need clinical assistance, the counselor helps provide referrals to psychologists and psychiatrists appointed by the Bogor Government.
