Coping with Stress
Wednesday, March 6th 4:30-5:30pm
This is the second in a series of four connected workshops that will talk about mental health (attend one or all four!). This week, we will be focusing on learning to manage stress in to foster resilience and increase student's capacity to discover their own strategies to help calm and regulate when they need it most.
This lesson helps youth build their own definitions of stress, identify what causes them stress, and discuss how people cope with stress in both helpful and unhelpful ways. Through brainstorming activities, young folks will learn to identify stress in their lives. Youth will identify a trusted adult and begin evaluation their own behavior for helpful and unhelpful coping strategies.
The following skills we will work to develop are the following: recognize stress, distinguish between health and unhealthy coping mechanisms, identify appropriate resources, and increase help-seeking behavior.
