#Stress: A positive or negative experience depending on the species & the circumstance!

August 31, 2014

This is a very interesting video, Stress Response: Savior or Killer, Robert Sapolsky, Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University. Sapolsky gives an interesting peek into the challenges of living a stressful life, but juxtaposes it with the challenges of stress when you fear for your life in the animal kingdom. Knowing what we know about the neurobiology of stress on other organ systems, including the immune system, should we be more proactive in schools to minimize, as well as support our students learning how to manage their stress? What do you do at your school that helps students live in this world such that they feel confident that control mechanisms are at their disposal? Feel free to share ideas or ask questions.
