“Not a minute too soon. We’re thrilled to have this as we navigate our
teenager daughter through the next several years.”
“I wish my parents had this when I was going through my teenage years.
I’m just glad my daughter can benefit from it now.”
“Dr. Morse , where were you ten years ago when my first child was going
through his teen years? This program is terrific.”
-Joe Garret - Hedge Fund Manager Berkley, CA 94705
“Dr. Morse’s original and lively approach never talks down to teens;
rather, he speaks to them in their own terms, in ways that meaningfully
acknowledge the real-life situations and circumstances that can incubate
stress to overwhelming proportions. Whether or not your teen has begun
the downward spiral so many tens experience, it is my feeling that this
program will help to give her the tools she needs to develop and thrive
to her fullest potential.”
-Louis Sass,Ph.D. -
Professor of Clinical Psychology, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ.
“Dr. Morse’s innovative program is a breakthrough in addressing perhaps
a pivotal problem for adolescents today: Stress is not only
painful and difficult to deal with; it is also often leads to very
destructive behaviors. Dr. Morse’s engaging, hip and teen-friendly
approach will not only “come to the rescue” where problems are already
escalating, but may well prevent serious problems before they start. It
is clear that Dr. Morse really knows kids; he knows what troubles them,
and he knows how to help. This program is a must for educators, and for
anyone who cares about helping a teenager they know to cope with the
myriad demands and stresses that face all teens in today’s complicated
and challenging world. Get this program - your teen will thank you, and
you will breathe a sigh of relief.”

Reduce Test Anxiety in Teens and
The complexion of our world's economy has changed dramatically over the
past few years, and there has been a corresponding increase in pressure
for kids and teens to succeed in school and meet these external
pressures. The competition to get into college has increased, and
greater care is needed in planning for the careers thereafter. It is no
wonder that teens and their parents are more and more concerned about
education and overcoming hurdles in order to get into a good college.
Like it or not, getting good grades and good SAT / ACT scores is often a
key factor in determining whether your teen gets into a good or mediocre
school. While emotional success is a better measure of one's happiness
in life, academic success still plays a major role in determining the
nature of one's financial success and having one's basic needs for food
and shelter met. Teen test anxiety disorder is a problem many teens
have, and it acts as a barrier to their achieving their potential in
life. Helping your teen overcome test anxiety can go a long way in
helping them succeed academically and in life.
What is Teen Test Anxiety?
Test anxiety is a condition that occurs when a child experiences
discomfort, tension or increased concern in response to a situation in
which they will be tested. It is situational, with kids having extreme
anxiety surrounding test taking, while being free of stress in other
areas of their lives. Physical symptoms of this disorder include stomach
aches or butterflies, muscle tension or skeletal pain, and sweaty palms.
Emotional symptoms include low frustration tolerance, excessive worry
and fear. Kids who report test anxiety disorder have more negative
thoughts during tests and self-critical comments like "I'm going to
fail" or "I'm really stupid."
Test anxiety disorder diminishes attention and concentration, it and
disrupts decision making at a time when it's most needed. Low levels of
anxiety are helpful because they motivate one to study and prepare. But
when they become excessive, it causes worry, fear and clouds one's
capacity to think clearly and perform to one's potential.
What are some techniques to overcome or reduce teen test anxiety?
Preparation and Practice - Planning to
study a little each day instead of waiting until the last moment
before the exam can help reduce stress. Becoming familiar with the
material and possible test items and questions can help create self
confidence prior to the exam.
Building a Strength Based Attitude -
Positive Thinking as a substitute for negative and self-critical
thinking can be practices as a means to reduce stress at its early
Learning Mindfulness-Based Stress
Reduction - Learning to take a series of five deep breaths as a way
of calming the body and mind at the first signs of stress can go
long way of reducing teen test anxiety disorder and enhancing
What parents can do to help their child
with his or her test anxiety?
Just telling your teen not to worry or be anxious before an exam will
have little benefit. Parents can help when they can encourage their
teens to find ways of relaxing, calming down, building self-confidence
and promoting a positive attitude toward test taking. Helping your child
with time management so that they prepare ahead of time rather than
waiting until the last minute to study will reduce teen anxiety over the
exam. Encouraging your child to get proper sleep and be well rested
before the exam can further help reduce stress and promote performance.
For High School students, SAT prep courses can help reduce anxiety and
increase exam scores through repeated exposure to the exam questions,
format, and test-taking strategies. The Kick Out Stress Program teaches
kids the basic skills in stress reduction by using five, easy-to-learn
methods and applying them to stressful situations, including exams. Kids
who gain the capacity to calm themselves before and during tests perform
better on the exams and reach higher scores than those who do not learn
these skills. The Kick Out Stress Program helps teens succeed against
this anxiety disorder. Finally, parents who feel they have done their
best to help their kids will be less prone to have their stress spill
over and negatively affect their teen's performance.
