Stress symptoms in children and adolescents - how using a combination of physiotherapy and psychology can support their learning

11:00 - 12:00

Over the last 5 to 10 years more and more children and adolescents show symptoms of what, in adults, would be described as stress. In Denmark and many other European countries, studies show that children and especially adolescents have more mental health issues than before, one of these mental health issues is symptoms of stress. We will outline what happens in the brain and the body when we suffer from stress and what the consequences of prolonged stress can be and how this can affect learning. We will present examples from our practice of how we work with children, adolescents and their families.
