This book provides a compilation of strategies (including reproducible student worksheets) specifically designed to help highly stressed children. Without help, these children eventually experience increased school failure, behavior difficulties, social/emotional problems, and/or health difficulties. The included At-A-Glance Chart will help you quickly locate suggested strategies according to the type of activity and where it will be used. It will also give you strategies that you can share with parents and other professionals who are working with these children.
The book topics cover:
- Learning about what are normal anxious feelings
- Exploring how to cope with the stressors that lead to these feelings
- Identifying and expressing specific current and past fears
- Learning and practicing appropriate coping skills
