The author describes a pilot program used for teaching stress management skills to adolescents. Another goal of the program was to review current studies & projects dealing with stress & to determine which methods & format would prove most successful with adolescents. The biggest impact of the program during its’ first year was raising awareness, but some concrete results, such as helping a chronically suicidal girl move from self-destructive behaviours to problem-solving, were also achieved.
