A new study outlines which coping strategies work best for stressed children and teens.


“Chronic stress is bad for adults, but it is particularly troublesome for children…”


The study is a meta-analysis of more than 200 coping and emotion regulation studies that included more than 80,000 young people. Learning effective ways to manage stress is especially important for children, says lead author Bruce Compas, professor of psychology and human development at Vanderbilt University.

“Chronic stress is bad for adults, but it is particularly troublesome for children, because among many other effects, it can disrupt still-developing white matter in the brain, causing long-term problems with complex thinking and memory skills, attention, learning and behavior.

“We found that the ways children cope are highly personal, and the strategies they choose do not always lead to ameliorating the negative effects of stress.”
