Handling Stress

What are the causes of teen stress, and how can adolescents learn to cope? This program provides insight on two significant sources of student anxiety: the general pressures of school and the stress triggered by bullying. High school counselors, psychologists, and pediatricians, such as Dr. Tim Jordan, describe the various forms of tension young adults can feel, including test anxiety and peer pressure, and suggest ways for teens to manage their workloads and their social lives. But even more serious is the stress of being a victim of bullying. Various experts, including psychologist Sandra Graham, explain the effects of, and the ways to stop, bullying at school.
