Why Stress Management?
Grounded in cognitive behavioural strategies, the Stress Management Program helps teens focus on how both good and bad stress impacts their body physically, emotionally and cognitively. The activities encourage students to problem solve and develop a toolbox of psychologically sound strategies that can help them be resilient when faced with life’s stressors. The Program is based on recourses developed by Strong Minds Strong Kids, Psychology Canada.
