Abstract/Summary

This study explored the relationship between emotional/informational, affection, positive social interaction, tangible, the categories of functional social support as predictors and perceived stress as outcome. It also examined the moderation effect of presence of a parent in the relationship between categories of functional social support and perceived stress. QUANTITATIVE research design was employed for the inquiry. The participants were 255 students from grade 7 to 10 aged 12 to 16 years from two private catholic schools of Pasay City. Multiple linear regression and hierarchical linear regression were the statistical procedures employed to arrive at the results. The findings show that positive social interaction support is the only predictor of perceived stress among categories of functional social support, presence of the mother is significant in emotional/informational, affection, tangible support, and female left behind adolescents have significantly higher perceived stress than males. However, emotional/ informational, affection, tangible support are not predictors of perceived stress, and there is no moderation effect of presence of a parent in the interaction between categories of functional social support and perceived stress. The study also presented implications, limitations of the study and recommendations for future research and counseling practice. Keywords:
