"The Stress Lessons training for Grades 7-12 refreshed my understanding of how stress can affect the brain, body and one’s behaviour.  As a French immersion high school teacher and guidance counsellor, I thought it was particularly useful to focus on the positive aspects of stress and will make use of the bilingual resources provided by the Psychology Foundation of Canada in upcoming lessons next term."  Highschool Teacher & Guidance Counsellor

Reviews 

"I learned to:Allowing youth to be the ones to determine and voice what their stressors are as well as allowing for an open conversation to happen and just listening" 
     
"Helped me to understand details. Everyone experienced stress, but sometimes you don’t understand what is going on in your body, how you can help even to yourself. You have to start from yourself, to be able to advise someone else.
It is very educational. Thank you".
