That's a tall order for young people but may be particularly challenging for youth exposed to chronic stress or traumatic experiences. Most risky teen behaviors serve at least partly as coping strategies that help youth manage uncomfortable stressors. These behaviors offer fleeting relief but lead to troubling patterns that only magnify stress and are in some cases life threatening. Helping youth develop a range of positive alternative coping strategies may diminish their need to turn to these worrisome quick fixes and will prepare them to thrive.
