BUSNELLO, Fernanda de Bastani; SCHAEFER, Luiziana Souto  and  KRISTENSEN, Christian Haag. Stressful events and coping strategies among adolescents: implications for Learning. Psicol. esc. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp.315-323. ISSN 1413-8557.

Throughout our lives we come across events that we think we are not able to deal with, which can generate a state of tension in the body called stress. The changes resulting from the stress and their impact on people’s lives may aggravate the maladjustment on the individual development, particularly in the school environment. This article explores the relationship between stressful events, stress and coping strategies in adolescents, discussing the possible implications of these factors in the learning process. Moreover, environmental factors, the neurobiology of stress and the role of resilience in coping with stressful situations are described.

Keywords : Stress; Resilience; Learning.
