A time of emotional stress or crisis can be a turning point in a person’s life and not a breaking point-----a time of hope and not of despair.
Stress is a natural part of life:
Children, adolescents and adults all have stress in their life;
It can be difficult at times to function at our best trying to meet the ever-increasing demands of contemporary life;
We may develop significant distress in the form of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, school problems, excessive anger or work problems;
Conflict is present in all families; and
Some crises are unavoidable and relate to a person or family’s passage from one stage to another.
The stress of everyday life can be overcome:
