Hampel and Petermann induct the reader into the phenomenon stress especially into the experience of stress and its processing by children and adolescents, in a scientifically sound and sensitive way. The authors introduce four training programs which differ regarding age group and setting. The programs themselves are subdivided as well so the recipients are offered a detailed insight into seven different training concepts. The manual benefits from the fact that Hampel and Petermann are both scientists and practioners at the same time. The theoretic explications as well as the instruction manual are accompanied by statistics, figures, charts and work material. The individual training options are being introduced briefly and later presented step by step. The required work material is available for download. Due to this ready-to-use manual professionals like child and adolescent psychotherapists as well as adjoining qualified professions like Social Workers can become acquainted with Anti-Stress-Training and where applicable adjust it and offer it themselves for the respective target group.
To avoid stress is something one could never start too early basically the starting point should already be the childhood. In case this fails it helps to stay cool. Children (8-13 years) who don´t succeed in both will find joy and support with developing their own strategies in coping with stress. The theoretical explanations are oriented towards Lazarus. When it comes to substantiating and developing their programs for stress management the authors have recourse to own groundwork and evaluations. Hampel and Petermann submit training manuals which empower to replicate. It is to owe these authors that they share their knowledge and experience regarding Anti-Stress-Training for children. In our children´s interest this book/ training belongs into the repertory of every professional working in the field.
