Fighting Invisible Tigers
Stress Management for Teens (Revised & Updated Third Edition)
Earl Hipp 
Fighting Invisible Tigers

Stress is something we all experience. But research suggests that adolescents are affected by it in unique ways that can increase impulsivity and risky behaviors. While eliminating stress from life isn’t realistic, young people can learn to control how they respond to it. This book offers proven techniques that teens can use to deal with stressful situations in school, at home, and among friends. They’ll find current information on how stress affects health and decision making and learn stress-management skills to handle stress in positive ways—including assertiveness, positive self-talk, time management, relaxation exercises, and much more. Filled with interesting facts, student quotes, and fun activities, this book is a great resource for any teen who’s said, “I’m stressed out!”



Author Earl Hipp offers tips to help teens deal with stress in a podcast with The Parent's Journal. Click here to listen.
