Stress Management for Teens: Balancing Life, School and Family – CLOSED
June 29, 2013 | 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Grade Level: Rising 9 - 12 | Class Cap: 20
Course Fee: $159 (lunch & snack included)
Students experience stress when they deem a situation as dangerous, difficult, or painful; often they do not have the life experiences, and therefore the internal resources, to cope with a stressful situation. Having access to a series of techniques can be critical for some, and a massive relief for those searching for ways to regain a balanced life.
This class will explore, in a safe environment, some of the sources of stress felt by teens, and will propose techniques to use when stress appears. Included will be a discussion of such topics as: How to manage your life so you don’t burn out; getting it all done without stressing out; learning to recognize stress; finding ways to relieve stress and stay healthy; and, creating a plan for stress management for high school, college and beyond.
Special Instructions: None. Bring whatever you need (for example, a sweater) to be comfortable for the day.
This is a summer class for high school students.
Registration for this class will close 48 hours before the class begins. If you have not yet registered your student during those final 48 hours, please contact us so that we may confirm whether seats are still open for the class.
