We set out the stages in the general procedure of a stress inoculation program for the treatment of
test anxiety in university students, with the aim of adapting it to the characteristics of each participant.
Research has previously been conducted to that end (Serrano, Delgado, & Escolar, 2010;
Serrano, Escolar, & Delgado, 2002; Serrano, Escolar, & Delgado, 2011) on dismantling strategies in
a real clinical field. We conclude that there are individual response patterns to test anxiety, so it is
therefore necessary to adapt the intervention to the principle variable that is affected in each individual
(Escolar & Serrano, 2012). We do not consider that training in study skills is appropriate,
when treating problems of irrational anxiety.
