"With new evidence indicating that undesirable stress is likely to have its roots in childhood, Childhood Stress in Contemporary Society is a much-needed resource for anyone who works or plays with children. An authority in the field of stress education, Dr. James Humphrey offers an extensive, easy-to-read discussion on what stress is, how it affects adults and children, and how to take back control when stress becomes overwhelming. Whether the reader is a parent, caretaker, counselor, or teacher, this book will provide a better understanding of stress and techniques to help children better cope throughout life."--BOOK JACKET.
