Preparing Children for Stressful Experiences.
Krueger, Ruth
Based on the author's experiences with severely disturbed preschool children, the paper focuses on the importance of classroom preparation in helping children cope with both routine and unusual stressful experiences. Briefly described is the Child Study Center program for severely disturbed children designed to develop a corrective relationship with others and help the children get in tune with and make sense of their environment and feel that they have some control over it, while at the same time helping them to identify and express the inside feelings that are aroused. The model for dealing with stressful situations is explained to involve providing opportunities to manipulate materials, dramatize, and verbalize feelings and anxieties and to deal in a cognitive way through anticipation and organization.
