Supporting Kids and Teens with Exam Stress in School: A Workbook – As children and teens are exposed to more and more pressure at school, exam stress comes hand in hand. This workbook, a fun and interactive resource aimed at children aged 10 and over, offers teachers, other professionals and parents tried and tested techniques to support young people’s wellbeing through revision and exams. Applying a cognitive behavioural framework, it will help pupils to consider academic stress in terms of thoughts, feeling, body sensations and behaviour. Strategies encompass managing a child’s lifestyle, namely exercise and diet, tried and tested CBT techniques, relaxation, positive self-talk and thought challenging, and other psychological methods such as mindfulness. Chapters will look at the day of the exam itself, evaluate stress in children with special educational needs and provide practical advice for parents as to how they can most successfully support their child. In a fully photocopiable format and suitable for either individual use or group work, Helping Kids and Teens with Exam Stress in Schools will guide parents, teachers, therapists and support staff to conquer students’ fears, improve exam performance and, perhaps most important of all, maintain a work-fun balance in young people’s lives.

CBT Art Workbook for Managing Stress – Using the principles of CBT, these illustrated worksheets help understand and manage feelings of stress. The activities follow the framework of a typical CBT course: how it works, looking at the nature of stress, linking thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physiology cycles, exploring different levels of thinking and beliefs, and identifying goals and future planning. It presents these theories in an accessible way so that adults are familiar with the foundations of CBT they will be using in the worksheets. They can complete them by writing or drawing, alongside the opportunity to colour in parts of the pages as they consider ideas.

Teen Stress Workbook – Adolescence can be a period of significant change for most teens, leading them 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.

Smart Sharks – Stress Can Mess with You –  is a card game based on the popular card game 21. In this challenging and fun game, players learn key skills while they try to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. The card game helps players learn to deal with stressful situations that are common in the middle school years. Shifting friendships, the start of dating, as well as financial problems at home can cause a great deal of stress. This games focuses on rational thinking to alleviate stress and anxiety. This game is a MUST HAVE for middle-school aged children trying to deal with the demands of their peer group and challenges in school and after-school activities.

Activities to help Young People Deal with Stress & Anxiety – There is a lot of pressure on our young people: media, social media, telephones, internet, friendships, peer groups, parents, school demands, exams and teachers.

The activities can be led by teachers, behaviour mentors, pastoral assistants, learning mentors, isolation room leaders and Special Educational needs staff.
