Stress Management for Elementary Schools.
Humphrey, James H.
Stress management for school children has had various degrees of success. School officials need information about stress and how to deal with it. The purpose of this book is to provide information useful in inauguration of such programs where they do not exist. While stress management should begin in the home and include nutrition, physical activity, and rest, schools must also recognize and provide stress management programs to reduce stressfulness of the daily lives of children. The book is comprised of 11 chapters: (1) The Elementary School Child; (2) An Overview of Childhood Stress; (3) Dealing With Childhood Emotions; (4) Home and Family Stress (research studies); (5) School Stress; (6) Stress Among Children With an Affliction (including disease, developmental disability, and psychic trauma); (7) Teaching Children About Stress (with a discussion of three of the better known approaches); (8) Inducing the Relaxation Response in Children; (9) Classroom Stress Reduction Exercises; (10) Games and Stunts That Reduce Stress; and (11) Reducing Stress Through Creative Relaxation.
