The majority of teens experience some form of stress related to school, society, family, or peers. People react differently to stress, and some are able to handle stressful situations more easily than others. A variety of factors—including genetic, psychological, and environmental—often contribute to how an individual reacts to stress.
Living with Stress provides all the information teens need to understand this subject, including causes, symptoms, treatments, and prevention. Helpful sidebars, appendixes, and further reading guide additional exploration, and real-life examples throughout the book illustrate the impact of living with stress. Chapters focus on the emotional and physical effects of stress, why teens are at risk for stress-related problems, and how to address stress with lifestyle changes.
