Riana Marie investigated beliefs about stress using a neuroscience-informed stress education program designed to help adolescents learn to cope with stressors, such as school. She found that teaching adolescents about the positive effects of stress physiology promoted more "stress-is-enhancing" mindsets in a sample of Australian adolescents, which may have benefits in educational settings.
