Committed to fostering a healthier classroom, Stop the Stress in Schools provides explicit methods for building healthy relationships and solving problems in positive ways. It features calming strategies that include slowing the pace; increasing positive engagement and interaction, considering the perspective of the student; and celebrating process rather than product. Instead of targeting the symptoms of stress, this thoughtful book focuses on the social-emotional traits that are instrumental in helping children navigate stress constructively. A comprehensive approach to reducing stress and frustration for teachers and students, the book includes practical examples, activities, and samples of student work.
