Mindfulness Training and Progressive Muscle Relaxation
Mindfulness is a well-researched tool to promote increasing awareness of the present and what we can observe to feel more grounded in our everyday life. Dr. Laura loves to integrate mindfulness techniques as a complimentary tool in the child’s therapeutic experience.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation is another tool often used to increase the child’s coping repertoire. This strategy teaches children how to systematically relax various muscle groups in their body and have more control over how they manifest their stress and anxiety.
