Synopsis

As young people are exposed to more and more pressure at school, exam stress comes hand in hand. This workbook, a fun and interactive resource aimed at children and teens aged 10 and over, offers teachers, other professionals and parents tried and tested techniques to support young people's wellbeing through revision and exams.

Applying a cognitive behavioural framework, it will help pupils to consider academic stress in terms of thoughts, feeling, body sensations and behaviour. Strategies encompass managing a child's lifestyle, namely exercise and diet, tried and tested CBT techniques, relaxation, positive self-talk and thought challenging, and other psychological methods such as mindfulness. Chapters will look at the day of the exam itself, evaluate stress in children with special educational needs and provide practical advice for parents as to how they can most successfully support their child.

With photocopiable resources to use with the young person and suitable for either individual use or group work, Supporting Kids and Teens with Exam Stress in Schools will guide parents, teachers, tutors, therapists and other supporting adults to conquer students' fears, improve exam performance and, perhaps most important of all, maintain a work-fun balance in young people's lives.
