Abstract

This study examined whether stress hardiness moderates the relationship between stress and anger during stressful police academy training. It was hypothesized that stress hardiness alters the strength of the relationship between stressful circumstances and anger. The study of stress resistance is an important area of study as stress has been linked to behavioral problems (e. g., absenteeism from work), emotional problems (e. g., depression), and physical problems (e. g., coronary heart disease).
