Living With Stress
What causes stress in children? Can stress have a great impact on their ability to function and develop normally? How do children express that they are overwhelmed? What can parents do to help them? Signs of stress in children are often misinterpreted by adults as children are not always able to verbalise what they feel. Instead, they resort to other modes and means, sometimes unconsciously, to draw attention to themselves and their troubles. Living with Stress is a valuable resource for helping parents recognise the symptoms of stress in their children. Parents will also be introduced to a range of resources and techniques they can employ in safeguarding their children’s physical and mental well-being. Revised and updated, Living with Stress is part of a series of handbooks on mental health in children written by mental health professionals from the Child Guidance Clinic.
