Most foster youth have been exposed to traumatic experiences both prior to and while being in the foster care system. These experiences may often result in poor stress management, which puts them at higher risk of developing negative health symptoms and problems later in life. To address the lack of stress management strategies in the foster youth population, I created a lesson plan to help youth from foster care manage stress from the “Supportive Transitional Age Youth” (STAY) program, operated by Haven of Hope Inc. located in Santa Cruz, California.
