Quick Tips are short, to-the-point audio tips, interventions and strategies intended to help the listener effectively teach a skill or manage an issue with a child or adolescent.
When a child is gripped with fear, it is sometimes hard for them to remember the words they could say to make themselves feel better. What if instead, they have practiced a very visceral (and FUN) physical pose that whenever they enact it, they are flooded with positive and empowering feelings that automatically trigger relief from their fear?
In this Quick Tip, author Michelle Cohen shares a forceful technique her clients have used with great success. She calls it the “Power Stance” and it is designed to automatically cause positive emotions to flood through the body, relieving the scary thoughts and helping alleviate anxiety. (3:25)
