As children and teens 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 aged 10 and over, offers teachers, other professionals and parents proven techniques to support young people's wellbeing through revision and exams.
Applying a cognitive behavioural framework, it helps pupils to consider academic stress in terms of thoughts, feeling, body sensations and behaviour. Strategies encompass managing a child's lifestyle, exercise and diet as well as tried-and-tested CBT techniques including relaxation, positive self-talk and mindfulness. Chapters 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 successfully support their child.
In a fully photocopiable format and suitable for either individual use or group work, Helping Kids and Teens with Exam Stress in Schools will guide parents, teachers, therapists and support staff to conquer students' fears, improve exam performance and, perhaps most important of all, maintain a work-fun balance in young people's lives.

Chapters deal with self-esteem, attention and concentration, keeping cool and calm, organisation, friendships and managing homework... I think it is also true to say that work such as this would be useful for many children who, although without the ADHD label, do experience problems with many of the areas dealt with in the workbook. -- Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties Journal
