Outline of Course 4
Module One – Recognize and Source the Child’s Distress
Stress has a spectrum of five stages, and you can visibly observe each stage, one escalating to another. By the time you see stress symptoms in a child at home, school, day care center, camp, or at a sports event, you are really observing the signs of an internal struggle that has been going on for some time. The key point is that stress is the underlying cause of all major illness and disease because that low-key chronic stress slowly erodes the energy of the body and mind over time. This changes the brain’s ability to cope, contributing to illness, overweight, low immune system, and behavioral issue sunless we can contain the stress and renew the vitality of the mind and body on a daily basis. Treating the behavioral symptoms alone is ineffective; you must direct your attention to the cause for a resolution.
Module 2 – Caring for the Whole Child
Caring for the whole child considers the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and mental needs of our children when determining how to help them cope with stress in the best way for their temperament. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to establish care for each of your children’s needs. Human beings of any age have several basic needs in common. When we meet these requirements, children can cope with adversity from an inner strength and develop the ability for quick thinking and action. Children’s needs fall into five categories: Physical, Emotional, Mental, Social, and Spiritual.
Module 3 – Full-Wave Breathing
Mastering emotional responses to stress—strengthening your vitality and resilience—has a fundamental cornerstone: conscious, effective breathing. Emotions and corresponding physical changes can significantly alter your breathing. Conversely, by shifting your breathing and noticing how your body responds, you can choose to breathe differently and gain control over your emotional responses. For example, we breathe shallowly when stressed, and when anxious, we tend to hold our breath. A heaving breath is associated with anger, rage, or trauma. Finally, a deep sadness or chronic depression can stifle breathing completely.
Module 4 – Storytelling
Storytelling is an age-old tradition in cultures worldwide. We can listen, share, dramatize, and immortalize good stories for the healing effect they have on our psyches. This module explains how to use different forms of storytelling for helping children cope with the variety of symptoms along the stress continuum. Stories help children meet both dramatic and everyday challenges in their lives. This module provides you with basic knowledge of how storytelling works and a few guidelines for having fun with storytelling.
Module 5 – Touch and Acupressure
“Connecting” and “integrating” are words that describe children’s ability to regulate their feelings, which is the foundation of coping skills. This course is about how connecting takes place and how it facilitates children’s coping skills through the incredible resources of the brain and the body.
