Psychological stress accompanies many typical activities of the students including examination, assignments and projects deadlines, prospective job’s practice applications etc. Individual stress coping strategies depend on personality traits, personal maturity and stress management experience. Among personal traits significant influence on stress coping strategies have Early Maladaptive Schemas (EMS) which develop in early childhood under the influence of the family relations and temperamental features. For effective academic counseling and tutoring it is necessary to take into account these factors.
