[Coping in children and adolescents with migrant origin].
ABSTRACT Children and adolescents of migrant origin often have disadvantages regarding education opportunities and health. This paper reports on the extra-curricular "Special Instruction Project for Children and Adolescents of Migrant Origin'", launched by the Stiftung Mercator and administered in Schwäbisch Gmünd. The project aims to improve education opportunities for children and adolescents of migrant origin by providing language and subject support. During the years 2006 to 2008 full-time holiday courses were realized in addition to the weekly subject instructions in German, Mathematics and English. In these holiday schools creative, sportive and health promoting aspects were integrated in language support. In terms of resource promotion and empowerment a module on stress and coping was developed and realized in the holiday courses. This module on stress and coping in context of the language support project is presented and discussed.
