  • The S.O.S. (Stressed Out Student) Solution

    Student stress continues to make headlines! Research has shown that high or continuous levels of stress can affect brain development in young children, as well as interfere with motivation, attention, memory, and the entire learning process. While some level of stress is normal and even desirable, our children need to be taught effective strategies to manage stress—preferably at young ages—learning how to reduce stress for success. Come join us for this informative and interactive workshop as we examine how to help children better understand and manage their stress—building resiliency and capacity for life.[Intended audience: Adults / Youth]
