Stress is complex and is experienced cognitively, emotionally, and physiologically. Stress is generally a response to feeling overwhelmed or without the resources to adequately manage a given situation. The experience of stress is a dynamic one; that is, that it affects the way we think and feel, which then affects our behavior, which then affects the way we think and feel. Each of us learns to manage the feelings of stress in different ways during our development and the strategies that we learn can remain with us through the lifespan. This workshop will focus on the developmental aspects of the experience of stress and stress management, and offer strategies to replace our ineffective default coping strategies.
