Children Under Stress

 

 

Course Description: Researchers from the University of Michigan identified that stress in children ranks in the top five child health concerns (C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, 2010). Some stress is both normal and, in fact, healthy, as it gives us opportunities for growth, such as fear of the dark and finding strategies to manage that fear. Stress in moderation supports the learning process as it can be motivating and increase productivity.   However, when stress causes imbalance in a child’s life, it can have life- long negative consequences.  Children react in many different ways to stress. In this course, we will identify some of the causes of extreme stress in children, such as grief, illness, poverty, abuse, witnessing violence, and other traumas. During this training, participants will learn more about children under stress and strategies to help young children cope with chronic stress.


Course Objectives:
1. Distinguish the difference between healthy and harmful stress in children Examine the typical signs and symptoms of stress in young children
2. Discuss coping strategies for helping children manage the negative outcomes from unhealthy stress
3. Identify resources to support educators who work with children under stress
