Synopsis

The Teenage Guide to Stress by Nicola Morgan

Essential reading for teenagers and the adults who care about them. A fantastically wide-ranging, reassuring, eye-opening and comprehensive look at the stresses many teenagers face, empowering them to take control of their mental health and wellbeing.Nicola Morgan is an established expert on the teenage brain and adolescent stress, known for her engaging, clear style. She is the author of the internationally renowned Blame My Brain: The Amazing Teenage Brain Revealed (shortlisted for the Aventis prize for science) and has spoken in schools and at conferences around the world. Now The Teenage Guide to Stress - written for teenagers but essential for adults who want to understand - tackles all the external stresses that teenagers face, including feelings of anger, sadness (and depression), fear and failure; issues caused by changing bodies, body hatred, weight problems, eating disorders and self-harm; pressures of exams and schoolwork; sleep problems; changing relationships with friends and family; boyfriend/girlfriend issues and sexual pressures; bullying and cyber-bullying; problems arising from the internet; and looks at how pre-existing conditions such as OCD and dyslexia may be affected by adolescence. As well as a sympathetic, practical and positive look at all those stresses, The Teenage Guide to Stress clearly explains the biology behind stress and, crucially, a huge range of strategies and suggestions to deal with it and prevent negative symptoms. A list of useful resources completes this fantastically wide-ranging, reassuring, eye-opening and comprehensive guide for young people, empowering them to take control of their mental health.

This book is a must-read for all teenagers but also for those who work with young people or are parents of teenagers. It will put your mind at rest and help you understand your own stressful situations and those of the people around you. A fantastic self-help book

in fact, a copy of The Teenage Guide to Stress should find a home in every high school library. Our teenage years are often the most difficult times to get through, so a guide like this really is invaluable and will be read for years to come. * Wondrous Reads * I cannot recommend this wonderful book highly enough. Despite the book being aimed at teenagers I have already recommended it to several parents struggling to support their children. This book would certainly be a valuable present for any teenager or parent. * Wellbeing Mentor * Written by a highly experienced author, clearly the book explains the biology behind stress and offers a huge range of practical strategies to cope with it and prevent negative symptoms. . . adults who are caring for stressed teens should read this book themselves, to gain an insight into the issues.
