Sample text

Think of a positive or negative stimulus such as an exciting point in a game, opening a gift, being yelled at by peers, taking a test, or walking along a dangerous road to or from school. Different children will begin to experience emotion at different points during these episodes. Some may react by experiencing an emotion such as anger or fear or excitement well before others experience a similar emotion. In the same way, some youngsters experience emotion arising slowly in regard to events or situations, whereas others experience intense feelings very quickly.

Children who are sensitive to threat experience anxiety in particular situations and react by freezing, escaping the situation, or fighting. Over time they may become so sensitized that they react without thinking. Once anxious, they may remain anxious for some time. There are clear differences among individuals in their ability to ‘turn off’ negative emotions after they have been activated. This is evident in students experiencing generalized anxiety and in students who cannot calm down once emotionally triggered for an inordinate amount of time, causing considerable difficulty for school staff as well as for themselves.

They tend to prefer avoidance strategies, such as sleeping or doing nothing, when they do not choose aggressive ones. These children do not believe that what they might think of to do to help themselves will work, nor do they think that the strategies that adults might suggest will work for them. This negative selfefficacy belief, combined with a lack of strategic knowledge, makes it very difficult for depressed juveniles to reduce negative emotions. A key challenge for these young people is recovering from negative moods.
