Help Teens Take Charge of Stress to Build School Success
FREE ACTIVITIES from theFEATURED BOOK
You will never eliminate stress from your classroom or counseling practice, nor should you. Stress management doesn’t mean getting rid of all stress. It means helping kids understand the stress response, identify individual and collective stressors, and learn and practice effective strategies for reducing stress and minimizing its destructive consequences. That in a nutshell is the purpose of this book.
Less Student Stress, More School Success approaches stress management broadly. Activities help students to understand the effects of stress on the brain, take steps to de-stress the learning environment, identify sources of stress, practice breathing and relaxation exercises, adopt habits that promote successful learning, understand the effects of nutrition and exercise on stress, and learn to more effectively manage anger and worry.
Every activity in this book provides you with optimum flexibility in its use and complete freedom to adapt the activity to fit your situation and the needs of your students.
