dc.description.abstract This project includes a review of empirically supported interventions (i.e., group and individual) to use with adolescents who are experiencing stress. It also presents an eight-week psycho-educational stress reduction/management group program manual, entitled Empower (Empower), for school counsellors to use in a school setting. The aim of the program is to empower adolescents to recognize the signs and symptoms of stress, learn a variety of stress reduction strategies to manage the stressors in their lives, as well as to assist them in moving towards achieving their individual goals. It is not the intent of Empower to be used in a lock-step approach, but as a resource to implement the program, facilitate weekly group sessions, and incorporate the strengths and skills of the group members and group leader. Each session includes a list of required material, objectives, resources, activities, and blackline masters for handouts and/or overheads. Strengths and limitations of the project are reviewed along with future recommendations. en_US
