The Study Without Stress Program teaches senior high school students cognitive and behavioural skills to manage the stress of the increased workload and pressure for performance associated with the final years of high school and final exams.
Topics covered in the program include:
Causes, symptoms and the role of stress
Managing stressful thoughts
Challenging expectations and beliefs about study
Achieving a healthy study/life balance
Preparing for exams
Dealing with procrastination, avoidance and perfectionism
Study Without Stress (SWoS) is run by trained facilitators using the Study Without Stress Program Kit, which includes a facilitator manual and an adolescent student workbook.
The Program can be delivered in a group format, or an individual format with a single student by a facilitator trained in the SWoS Program.
The 3rd edition facilitator manual includes two alternate formats to deliver the Program, either 8 sessions x 1 hour duration per session or 6 sessions x 1.5 hours duration per session. Facilitators can choose the format that best suits their needs. It also includes the content from the student workbook within each session.
