  • Sources of Adolescent stress or Adolescent Stressors are again varied – but if we try to organize them in groups – I hope this is a good workable plan – although I am a very poor organizer – but I do not know how I could do it nicely - I feel all of us should have a very clear understanding of these stressors, as only then we can eliminate them from our dear adolescents. - Let us see them one by one - PSYCHIATRY DEPARTMENT BVCON PUNE
  • As If a boy has gone for a outing with her GF and they met an accident, and girl has broken her leg, now the boy has to inform her parents, his own parents, deal with the police, deal with the local public etc… just imagine the amount of nervousness – specially if his/her parents are like me – who have very fixed ideas about children and talk very little, similarly how impatient a girl or a boy is before his first dating. And if on the first date the girl asks for a dinner in a five star hotel, that too in a taxi to Dr Bansal’s son who hardly has 100 bucks in his pocket – think about his self image – it will certainly go down (does it mean I should keep 1000 in his pocket so that he can entertain many GFs not only one !) This decreased low self image coupled with nervousness and impatient behavior will lead to frustrations and this can be manifested either by depression when after returning he will not talk to any one – will sit very quite – looking in sky – or to the vacant wall – as if he is trying to count brush marks on the wall. Or he will start reacting violently – throwing objects and taking even the trivial remarks as very serious assaults on his personality. PSYCHIATRY DEPARTMENT BVCON PUNE
  • Stress is a term we use to describe an imbalance between the demands of life and that person’s ability to meet those demands. Stress, like anything else, can follow typical developmental stages. Children usually pick up on our moods quickly. They are usually the first to know something is not right. Then they begin to worry and assume that the thing wrong is their fault. PSYCHIATRY DEPARTMENT BVCON PUNE
  • Talk about the difference between feelings and emotions. Anger versus Fear
  • 90% of our behavior is unconscious. What if…my child doesn’t clean his room, he’ll be messy for life.
  • D.H. Meichenbaum, “Cognitive Modification of Test Anxious College Students”, Journel of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, vol.39, 1972, pp 370-378

    24. 24. The Stress Model ..
    25. 25. The Stress Model
    26. 26. The Stress Model TheStress Model helps us understand differently the behavior . The Stress Model states: – All behavior arises from a state of stress. – In between the stress and behavior is the presence of an emotion. – The emotion is either love or fear. – It is through the expression, processing, and understanding of the emotion that we can calm the stress and diminish the behavior.
    27. 27. Stress We must first be aware of our own stress before we can begin to address the stress in others. Let’s dissect these situations. What stresses do you face each day? – Work related? Home related? System related?
    28. 28. Stress Thinkabout the situations that prompted you to come here today… – What is it about this particular situation that is so stressful? – Where in your life has this situation occurred before?
    29. 29. STIMULUS-BASED MODEL:-(Holmes and Rahes model-1960) Stress:- a stimulus , a life event, or a set of circumstances that arouses physiologic & psychological reactions that may increase the individual’s vulnerability to illness.
    30. 30. SRRS(SOCIAL READJUSTMENTSRATING SCALE) 43 life changes or events. Both positive & negative in nature. Considered stressful. Identify the Effect of stressor in person’s life. If stressor is more in short period(1-2yr) then more likely physical illnesses, mental disorders or other stress response will follow.
    31. 31. SRRS MEASURING SRRS SCORE STRESS HIGH SRRS SCORE STRESS LOW But results are depends on mediating factor – Eg. Coping strategies, – Role of stressor, perception of individual etc.
    33. 33. TRANSACTION-BASED MODEL(LOZARAS, 1966) Cognitive, affective & adaptive(coping) response that arise from person-environment tractions. Environment & person is not separable. Environment changes person responds with coping response. Different individual show different reaction to response. Eg. Illness respone one denial, another anxiety, still another depression
    34. 34. Applying The Stress Model Absolutely, the first step when we are triggered in our stress is to ACKNOWLEDGE our stress!BREATHE! Stress causes us to: – React from the past – Obsess about the future – Take us out of the present
    35. 35. Applying the Stress Model Acceptance – we must develop an accepting relationship with individual. We must also teach the parents about acceptance and model this for them. Understanding – this is really seen in our perception of the child’s behavior. If we see anger, we do not truly understand this child. What is your child trying to communicate through their behavior?
    36. 36. Applying the Stress Model Empathy – Defined as the ability to experience and identify with the emotional state of another person. Empathy and reflecting feelings does not mean we have to agree. It means that we get what is going on. Patience – We ourselves must be emotionally regulated in order to exercise patience.
    37. 37. Applying the Stress Model Trust – Our children trusting us may be more important than our trust in our children. Love – Takes effort, love is in the action of doing all the things above. – This is the opposite of fear. We must know love in order to teach and model love. This is what we want to replace fear.
    38. 38. Applying the Stress Model Training – “form habits, thoughts, or behaviors by discipline and instruction” Affection – physical contact can be calming Structure – chaotic vs. organized- home vs. school? Expectations – be clear and communicate them, clarify that the child understands
    39. 39. Applying the Stress Model Time-In – “I see that you are in need of something, come and sit beside me until you feel better.” When we think a child is acting out to get attention, it is because a child needs attention. Mentoring – connect this child to another adult outside the parent/child relationship. Awareness – Early identification of stress Containment – keep the child in a space of more direct proximity to the teacher than what may be needed for other students.
    40. 40. Applying the Stress Model Team – the power and importance of a team working with this youth is vital. Reduced Peer Interaction – match the developmental needs of the youth.
    41. 41. Applying The Stress Model Reacting versus responding – Flexibility versus Rigidity – Windows of Tolerance Trauma – Our relationship blueprints are affected by the trauma we experience.
    42. 42. Summary Understanding our own stress before we engage with a child is sure to help reduce the child’s stress. A child’s behavior is a way of communicating that he/she is stressed and needs regulation. Adults are responsible for teaching and modeling regulation. Understanding the stress underlying the behavior assists us in helping a child change his/her behavior.
    43. 43. Is STRESS good or bad forus ? All stresses can be GOODSo all efforts should be to convert allstresses into EUSTRESS –This can beachieved by stress management techniques

Monitoring one’s own self-defeating strategies – teaching new cognitive strategies3. Teaching new skills like relaxation4. Providing real life homework assignment that become increasingly difficult to carry out
