Learn the difference between stress and anxiety, discover the causes of stress and how your body responds to stress, and learn at least 3 ways to increase relaxation and reduce stress.

This Program is for Teens, ages 13-18, and registration is required.

Teens are under almost constant pressure to perform well at school, fit in socially, and take part in extracurricular activities and sports. Not to mention pressures that may be present at home. At home, there may be pressures to get along with or raise siblings, to hold down a job, to manage household chores, and to cope with potentially unsafe living environments.  
 
If left unmanaged, these stressors can lead to chronic problems like anxiety, depression, misuse of substances, and even physical health conditions. The good news is teens can learn how to manage stress effectively, so they don't feel as anxious, overwhelmed, or paralyzed. With the help of a licensed professional counselor Teens will learn: 
 
1. To describe the difference between stress and anxiety to identify our stress signs and symptoms so we can better manage our own stress levels  
 
2. Explore what causes the stress response in our bodies and the potential physical, mental, and social impacts of long-term, unmanaged stress  
 
3. Learn and practice at least 3 ways our brains’ relaxation response can be strengthened to reduce the amount of stress that stays in our bodies.
