The primary purpose of the present investigation is to study cognitive restructuring: a self controlled procedure to reduce the stress level of high stress high school girl students in Delhi who are appearing for exams and experiencing too much of academic demands and social pressure. Specific objectives of the study were to test the relative efficacy of self controlled technique (cognitive restructuring) effective in reducing the stress level of high stress high school girl students in Delhi as compared to their control group counterparts. A multistage sampling technique was used for selecting the final sample out of the target sample of 500 girl students from various schools of Delhi. For the final sample 200 girls were selected on the basis of their scores on Stress Inventory. Extreme groups of high and low stress were formed by taking the subjects above and below M ±1SD on Stress Inventory. Further, each of two groups were divided in to two equivalent groups of 50 subjects on random basis to be assigned to two therapeutic intervention; i.e. Systematic Rational Restructuring and Control Group. The low and moderate stress subjects are included to serve as in-built control groups for high stress subjects. The subjects in non treatment control group were also treated exactly in the same manner as that of the treatment group. The only difference being that instead of cognitive therapy the therapist asked them about school life. The data was analyzed by using descriptive, multivariate analysis and t-test. Results indicated that high stress, high school girls in treatment group in general improved in terms of their stress scores in comparison to the control group.
