This paper reports results for an exploratory study focused on the relationships between stressors, social support, stress states, and adaptational patterns among a sample of Cambodian university students. The conceptual framework for the study is based on Marsella's Interactional Model of Psychopathology. Cambodian students are faced with challenges that affect their psychological wellbeing as well astheir ability to lead their fragile democracy into the global economy. Findings lead to two major conclusions: First, the major stress factors affecting students' life satisfaction depends on life events, the problems of everyday life, and the availability of social support. Second, the only stress factor showing a strong impact on students' psychological and somatic responses is the exposure to daily hassles. Limitations of the present study and suggestions for future studies are discussed.
