Children, adolescents, and families are exposed to a wide range of stresses such as divorce, remarriage, the loss of a loved one, acquisition of a family member, changing schools, or military deployments. Although stress is considered an external force or trigger, children and adolescents can impose stress on themselves through unhealthy or maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. Often, these stresses are diagnosed as adjustment disorders.
For this Discussion, select a child or adolescent stress or adjustment issue. Consider how this stress or adjustment issue manifests itself and what factors may influence its manifestation.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a brief description of the child or adolescent stress or adjustment issue you selected. Then, explain one way culture, gender, or social factors might influence the manifestation of the stress or adjustment issue and how. Finally, explain which factor or manifestation of the adjustment issue may be the most difficult for you to address and why. Be specific and use examples.
