Product Description
I have several students who have had a difficult time learning and generalizing using coping skills for self-regulation. Often they say they don’t need them or refuse to practice and try them. I made this lesson for a student with just this issue. Once I told him about the ”science” of the difference between your body and brain connection when relaxed versus tense, he began to understand and be more open to trying to do some skills. This seems to have taken the pressure off of him personally, and put in perspective that it’s my brain… it doesn't have enough blood and oxygen. I use this before I teach my repertoire of coping skills. In my experience, it makes my kiddos more open to listening and practicing. We discuss Stress as tension and compare, using a great T-chart, the different body sensations and the different feelings associated with each. We then discuss what exactly tension does to the brain and what a relaxed state does to the brain.
