Lecturer, Department of Educational Foundations, Faculty of Education, Great Zimbabwe University.
This study sort to investigate
views of teachers and students on sources of adolescent
stress, effects of stress and how stress can be managed. The
descriptive survey design was used. Data collection was
through questionnaires and interviews. A total of 300 people
participated in the study. Research findings revealed that
due to rapid growth of their bodies, adolescents experience
incompatibility of their mental development with their
physical changes or with the social environment and as a
result they suffer from problems arising from inadequate
adaptation. Stress can lead to depression, anxiety and other
social emotional problems. The study suggested that with so
much pressure in their lives teaching stress management
helps prepare adolescents with tools needed to recognise and
manage stress in an effective and positive manner.
