Highly stressed children eventually experience increased school failure, behavior difficulties, social/emotional problems, and/or health difficulties.
This book provides a collection of strategies (including reproducible student worksheets) specifically designed for you to use to help highly stressed children:
- Learn about what are normal anxious feelings
- Explore how to cope with the stressors that lead to these feelings
- Identify and express specific current and past fears
- Learn and practice appropriate coping skills.
An At-A-Glance Chart is included to help you quickly locate suggested strategies according to the type of activity and where it will be used (i.e. individual student small group or classroom). It will also give you strategies you can share with parents and other professionals who are working with these children.
