Open Access Graduate Research Paper
With the fast pace of our technological society, statistics demonstrate that more and more children are victims of childhood stress (Miller, 1982). For example, child suicide has become the "eighth leading cause of death in children ages 8-14 and has become the second leading cause of death for those in the 15-24 year old age group" (Arent, 1984, p. 223). The increases in child and teen drug/alcohol addiction along with the increased number of children identified, labeled and placed in school programs for the emotionally disturbed, attest to the fact that many children are choosing dramatic ways to exhibit stress and are acquiring habits which will only produce more stress (Arent, 1984).
