Adolescents are no strangers to stress. This book explores the science behind that sweaty, heart-racing, under-pressure feeling they sometimes get as they struggle to navigate their changing world. It covers the fight-or-flight reaction to sudden danger, how people cope with chronic stress, how trauma can affect the brain, and the surprising treatments scientists have found for stress in everyday life. The book is divided into chapters and sections that break the information into easily readable chunks, with sidebars and factoids throughout, and simple and often humorous illustrations by Marie-Eve Tremblay.
