New Resources from the Psychology Foundation of Canada

The Kids Have Stress Too! (KHST!®) program is based on evidence that with help, young children can learn practical strategies to relieve stress, and effective ways to respond to stressful situations. By learning to cope with life’s ups and downs, children develop healthy strategies that help them to adapt, self-regulate, be resourceful, feel competent and become more resilient.

KHST! ® workshops help educators, caregivers, parents and others:

  • learn how to recognize stress in children
  • identify the key role relationships with parents, caregivers and educators play in helping children learn to manage stress
  • practice age-appropriate stress-management techniques that help teach children to relax and become more resilient
  • learn effective ways to promote positive emotional development and self-regulation in young children.
