heal.abstractThe study explored first year undergraduate students intention to change behavior in an attempt to manage stressful academic situations (passing the exams, semester s grades and organization of their studies) and the effect of the self-efficacy, the pros, cons of stress management and the pros of stress on moving between stages. Gender differences were explored. The validity and reliability of the Decision Balance Inventory were also investigated. The study was held through questionnaires. All scales had acceptable levels of internal consistency (60 < α < 79) and the sample consisted of 209 first-year undergraduate students. The results of the exploratory factor analysis supported the factorial validity and the reliability of the Decisional Balance Inventory. Most of the students reported themselves in the earlier stages of change. The results indicated an interplay of self-efficacy with the pros, cons of stress management and the pros of stress, mainly at the stages of precontemplation and preparation. There were few gender differences. Females reported a less positive perception of the pros of stress management than males when closer to adopt a behavior of stress management. The findings are discussed in relation to recent literature.el
