One-third of all teens feel some negative stress on a daily basis. But not all stress is bad. A young gymnast describes how a certain amount of stress helps him perform better. Peter Montminy, a child psychologist and wellness coach, explains how too little stress makes us bored and listless, whereas too much stress can lead to burnout and exhaustion. The program shows students the importance of achieving the right stress balance. Real teens talk about the types of situations that cause them to become too stressed. These include academic pressures, family pressures, financial worries, social pressures, and self-imposed pressures to excel. They also describe their experience with the harmful effects of stress including headaches, anxiety, depression, and strained relationships with family and friends. Dr. Montminy and a group of teens talk about how to successfully manage stress with every day activities. A 15-year-old rap artist describes how he finds relief from stress by performing on stage—an activity that others might find stressful.
Includes:Research-Based video, plus teacher's resource book, student handouts and pre/post test in digital format.
