“High school students are reporting increasingly high levels of stress stemming from academic, social and family difficulties, with minimal knowledge as to how to effectively manage stress. Consequently, a concerning number of youth are engaging in maladaptive behaviors such as risk taking, nonsuicidal self-injury, and problematic video game use to manage their stress. While the school setting represents an ideal site to teach effective stress management, existing programs are often lengthy, making them challenging to implement with most school curricula. In response, our research team developed a brief, single-session stress management program. The program addresses the key components of adolescent stress management (psychoeducation, decreasing stigma, and coping skills) within one classroom period, and was evaluated extremely positively by participating teens” – Canadian Education Association. http://www.cea-ace.ca/about-us
