Stress Management for HSC
“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.”
Stress during exams can be a significant problem for most students, more often than not resulting in a fear of failure that defeats them even before they sit for their paper.
Research has shown that more and more Australian students are affected by exam stress than ever before. Some stress pushes us to meet goals by studying more, working harder or sticking with a challenging task. But sometime stress reaches an unhealthy level that can prevent us from functioning well and meeting our goals.
The good news is that stress can be managed and parents have the power to help their teenagers feel in control and prepared.
Our Stress Management for HSC workshop is perfect for students in Year 12.
The workshop aims to teach participants:
- What is “stress” and how it affects them
- How to set goals and find meaning in the HSC year
- How to identify their strengths
- How to use Mindfulness and cutting edge relaxation techniques to boost brain function
- Ways to find practical strategies that work best for them and their family
Held over 2 Saturdays in June before commencement of HSC trials, this 4 hour workshop equips participants and their families with cutting-edge, evidence-based stress busting techniques to maximise brain function.
