Overview

Many teenagers feel beleaguered in a world where they face increasingly high expectations but greater uncertainties at home, at school, and in the world at large. From fear-inducing infomercials about AIDS and the hazards of smoking, drugs, and drinking, to the War on Terrorism and the threat of biological warfare or worse, today's teens are dealing with adult issues and problems previous generations were not. With little power to control or affect outcomes, it's no wonder that stress and stress-related problems have become widespread among today's young people. Mark Powell has written Stress Relief specifically to make eliminating stress an art form. Written in a style that appeals to a teen audience, this accessible volume is not about managing stress, but rather about preventing and avoiding it and eliminating the feelings it causes. This is a clear, grounded, and masterly guide, playful and energetic in its voice, yet, at the same time, challenging and inspiring. This book is packed with insightful thoughts, ideas, and techniques like breathing exercises, meditation, affirmation and creative visualization, and tips on herbs and bodywork. It empowers teens by giving them control over their lives.

Editorial Reviews

10/15/2003 Booklist
Insightful and informative, Stress Relief examines the causes of stress most likely to affect teens...the book is filled with accessible and practical information....Good choices for both public and school collections.
KLIATT
AGERANGE: Ages 12 to adult.

The Ultimate Teen Guide is an excellent series of books. The authors are qualified; e.g., the author of Sexual Decisions has a Ph.D. in child and adolescent development, an Ed.M. in human development from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and currently teaches human sexuality and women’s health at the university level. She certainly mentions abstinence, and more importantly, she makes sure teenagers understand which sexual practices count as abstinence and which don’t. She covers just about any possible sexual choice or situation teenagers may wonder about. The book Stress Relief is especially important in the series, since it must speak to just about every teenager. The author is a physical education teacher at a Waldorf school, and he is a certified Rolfer, nutritional consultant, and spiritual practitioner. The main principle is that each person has within himself the ability to be calm and at peace, regardless of the outside influences in each life that make a person feel stressed. The big three approaches are: exercise, good nutrition, and good sleep. He also discusses breathing techniques and meditation. He talks about how perfectionism, guilt, shame, and fear work against us and how to deal with these feelings. He recommends therapy for those who find it difficult to understand why they feel the way they do. His “voice” is encouraging and reasonable. Asthma and Diabetes cover all the basics and focus on teenagers coping with these diseases. The longer book Learning Disabilities is helpful, again especially so since it explains these complex problems in a way adolescents can understand. Reviewer: ClaireRosser
