WHAT'S NEW
Kids In The Zone: Helping Kids Cope with Stress
5/12/2006


The Mind/Body Medical Institute’s Kids in the Zone, an innovative program for kids 10-14 living with stress-exacerbated health problems, including asthma, insomnia, headaches, fatigue, stomach pain, nausea, bowel irregularity, dizziness, and chronic pain. This program combines relaxation techniques with healthy coping skills in an enjoyable, interactive way and, as a complement to conventional treatment, helps kids make changes that lead to improvements in their physical and mental health. Over eight weekly sessions, we help kids: understand how stress negatively affects physical and emotional health, reduce physical symptoms, and regain a sense of control and well-being. Kids in the Zone is directed by Laura Steele, MD and co-led by Tara Fay, EP. Concurrent with Kids in the Zone, we offer a self-pay program for parents to meet in a group with Patricia Arcari, PhD, director of Calm Mother, Happy Child, to learn strategies for minimizing the impact of stress on their children as well as on their own lives.

For registration information, contact Tara Fay at 617.991.0102 ext. 232 or tfay@mbmi.org
