In a Nutshell - This book describes the way stress manifests in children's lives and presents strategies to teachers and childcare providers for alleviating those stresses. It is designed to help educators, childcare providers, and parents understand sources of child stresses and solutions to ameliorate those stresses. It describes the varied ways in which stress manifests in the lives of young children and presents innovative, time-tested and clinically validated strategies for alleviating a wide range of child stresses. The book will cover topics such as understanding the types of stress (e.g. separation anxiety, aggression, health issues, learning disabilities, bullying) in children's lives and the sources and signs of stress, choosing the appropriate stress-busting technique for each child, and how to personalize stress-reducing strategies.
