Summary

This guide consists of a set of activities to help elementary school students cope with fears and stress. Each activity includes the curricular areas in which it would fit (i.e., language arts, social studies, etc.), the grade level and group size for which it is suitable, and the approximate time necessary for its completion. The guide is divided into the following sections: (1) an introduction to the origin of fears and stress in children and a theory of the foundations for successful coping; (2) a set of fear-specific activities, which address themselves to the alleviation of general and specific childhood fears; (3) a set of fear-prevention activities to help build children's feelings of security, self-worth, and control; (4) stress-reducing activities with a variety of scripts that can be used with various grade levels; (5) activities for high risk children, including a model of counseling for children who have suffered a trauma or who have not developed successful coping skills; (6) a bibliography of children's books arranged by fear, author, and grade level, which can be used by teachers or counselors for bibliotherapy; and (7) a list of other resources for educators addressing childhood fears and stress.
