Stress Relief through Mindfulness & Guided Relaxation
Many children and teens diagnosed as ADHD can be helped by this program even though they are on medication. Children who may be experiencing anxiety may also be helped by the Old Me New Me program.
Many are also struggling with hidden stress from unspoken trauma. Children often feel totally overwhelmed and most have no idea how to handle their frustrations, fears and feelings. They simply don’t know how to talk about or express their feelings appropriately in order to get help or their needs met.
Often children are not taught how to handle the stress in their lives. Their inability to handle the stress and frustrations in their lives are some of the major reasons children have behavioral problems and ultimately find themselves in more serious trouble as they age.
In recent years, it has been discovered through the latest brain research that talk therapy does little to help children and teens overcome these behavioral and emotional problems. Talk therapy is generally not effective for children and young teens because of their stage of brain development. However, techniques, such as relaxation and guided visualization, have proven highly effective for this age group. See published research studies.
Old Me New Me takes the listener through calming and entertaining stories in the imagination that includes soothing sound effects and music.
These techniques build resiliency and teach children how to relax while listening to stories in their imagination that teach important skills to deal with difficult life situations that they encounter on a daily basis.
This program helps children from ages 5-16 that may be ADHD or have difficulty handling the stress in their lives. These important skills can last a lifetime.
