Student research paper


The project that I chose to do for my capstone project was to create an interactive workbook for youth to help them understand anxiety and stress. I found that there was a need for youth to have a tool to learn to cope with anxiety and stress. The words anxiety and stress have both become buzzwords amongst middle school and high school students, but do they really understand what it is and how to deal with it? This workbook will give them an arsenal of tools and resources to assist them with learning more about these buzzwords and most importantly, learn how to deal with them. As a parent of 4 children, I have found that teenage years are the hardest for our youth and the most pressure is put on them. It is heartbreaking to watch our youth struggle with such an adult subject. Our society has put many pressures on these young adults, and it is necessary for us to help them learn how to face these pressures head on and with a brave face on.
