The Forum at Dana Hall School is a symposium series designed to examine a topic of particular relevance to girls and girls education. This discussion focused on adolescent girls and stress. While girls are aspiring to even more ambitious academic goals than ever, they also report higher levels of stress and a stronger reaction to stress than their male counterparts.
At this event on May 2, 2019, a group of educators, scientists and clinicians who work with girls and young women from childhood through the collegiate years, shared recent research findings, as well as discussed and shared practical strategies to help parents, teachers and students devise methods to perform well in the classroom, while also mitigating stress.
As a leader in girls’ education Dana Hall School is well suited to lead an informative and practical discussion on adolescent girls and stress.
