The Year 11 students attend the stress management workshop “Aulas felices”

From the Nursing Department together with the Psychopedagogical Department we have programmed a workshop to manage stress in exam situations which we have called “Aulas felices” (“Happy classrooms”) and which the Year 11 students have been able to attend, as we understand that during this course the students may experience high levels of anxiety when exposed to official exams.

Several studies show that there is a high percentage of adolescents who experience episodes of stress and anxiety, which they are often unable to identify, let alone control effectively. For this reason, we wanted to help them to know their emotions, to recognise stress and learn how to release it through dynamic exercises and relaxation techniques that can be useful in their daily lives.
