Teen Stress Workbook: Facilitator Reproducible Self-Assessments, Exercises, & Educational Handouts

Overview

Adolescence can be a period of significant change, leading teens to experience stress. Stress is the way our bodies and minds react to changes in life. Stress, an uncomfortable feeling teens get, is triggered when they are overwhelmed, out of control, frustrated, or excessively worried about something. No one can avoid stress. Small amounts of stress can be okay, but chronic stress can push people beyond the limits of what can be handled.

The Teen Stress Workbook contains five separate sections to help teens learn more about themselves, the skills they possess, and to manage the stress that occurs in their lives. Participants will learn new skills and the importance of preventing, managing and coping with stress and its symptoms. Included are the following reproducible pages: assessment instruments, activity handouts, role plays, quotations, reflective questions for journaling, and educational handouts.

The Teen Stress Workbook is designed to help teens identify the primary reasons they are feeling stress, find better ways to use their newfound stress management skills to feel more confident and less helpless, and to cope and make better choices when responding to stress.

The five sections include:

  • How do I know when I’m stressed
  • My stressors
  • Eustress vs. distress
  • Stressed for success
  • How I deal with my stress
