They'll find current information on how stress affects health and decision making and learn stress-management skills to handle stress in positive ways--including assertiveness, positive self-talk, time management, relaxation exercises, and much more. Filled with interesting facts, student quotes, and fun activities, this book is a great resource for any teen who's said, "I'm stressed out!"
