Guiding Adolescents to Use Healthy Strategies to Manage Stress Editors: Kenneth R. Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed, FAAP, FSAHM Sara B. Kinsman, MD, PhD In today’s pressure-cooker society, youth need to tap into their strengths, acquire specifi c skills to cope, recover from adversity, and be prepared for future challenges. That’s a tall order for all young people but may be partic - ularly challenging for youth exposed to chronic stress or traumatic experiences. Most risky teen behaviors serve at least partly as coping strategies that help youth manage uncomfortable stressors. These behaviors offer fl eeting relief but lead to troubling patterns that only magnify stress and are in some cases life threatening. Helping youth develop a range of positive alternative coping strategies may diminish their need to turn to these worrisome quick fi xes and will prepare them to thrive.

Offer practical approaches for guiding youth to control their reactions and choose healthier behaviors. Use strategies to de-escalate tension when stressors lead to crises. Available as an AAP eBook!
