`As one would expect from a publisher with a proven track record in books on behaviour management… well illustrated, easy to use and potentially very effective' - Highland

`Would be a useful resource to encourage the inclusion of emotional literacy to a wider audience without "giving away the psychology". It could easily be used by teachers as a package, or be used in conjunction with an EP where schools need more encouragement to feel less confident. I would recommend this as a useful practical resource for schools' - Educational Psychology in Practice

All people, including young people, face tensions and stress but its how we learn to manage stress thats important.

The sections of this book cover:

" what is stress

" who becomes affected by stress

" the stresses faced by young people

" good ways to beat stress

" new ways of coping with stress.

The sections use stories to help children understand stress and how it manifests itself, and to develop a set of skills and coping strategies. There are comprehensive teacher notes, photocopiable worksheets and a variety of stress management strategies.

This resource is intended for whole class/group work and is not recommended for individual support for children who have suffered severe trauma.
