Executive function and self-regulation skills

A child will hold their breath when they are young when they get scared. As the stress component compounds and persists, the residual response affects the executive functioning skills development.

In order to reach our community members to start the regain of health, wellness and optimal functioning level, we feel it is imperative to focus on  evidence-based care stress management, executive functioning skill building  and self-regulation skills as a number-one top priority in component program offerings.

We are not born with these skills - we are born with the ability to develop them

Skill developments in children can be seriously impaired or delayed by influences of stress and absence of healthy relationships. Neglect, abuse, and or violence damages the brain development and development of executive function

“Providing the support that children need to build these skills at home, in early care and education programs, and in other settings they experience regularly is one of society’s most important responsibilities.” - The President and Fellows of Harvard College   read more here

We offer consultations, counseling therapy video programs with a main focus in stress management and building executive functioning skill levels. We feel this is the missing piece in therapeutic care. The evidence-based care is remarkable in outcome potentials.  Message from Our Founder; Martha Watson, PhD

Techniques Learned:

Diaphragmatic Breathing: Prinsloo, Derman, Lambert, and Rauch (2013) studied how deep breathing affected the heart rate of participants that had stressed induced. In their study they found that the heart rate of participants in the study decreased. Participants that engaged in deep breathing became less stressed after the second stress induction.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) Training: Multiple studies have shown evidence that PMR reduces stress. Nickel, Lahmann, Tritt, Loew, Rother, and Nickel (2005) conducted a study to test the effects PMR had on aggressive adolescents. The results showed that overall there was significant decrease in anger and stress

Guided Imagery: Research efforts directed at alleviating post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety and other psychological ills found in life are improving the lives of countless people. Advances in cognitive, behavioral and medication therapies are growing at a steady rate. Please see Research Booklet.

Self-Hypnosis: Harvard University professor Herbert Benson found that both Meditation and Self-Hypnosis are effective in reducing anxiety (p=0.05) and lowering blood pressure (p=0.075).

Relaxation: A systematic review of all self-help treatments published in the Medical Journal of Australia reported that relaxation training had the “best evidence of effectiveness” for “generalized anxiety, panic disorder, dental phobia and test anxiety.”

Audios: In a study in which patients with anxiety problems were given Self-Hypnosis tapes, both anxiety and blood pressure showed significant reduction. A follow-up nine months later of as many subjects as were available showed that these desirable effects were still detectable to a significant degree.
