A Researched Based Program of Relaxation, Learning and Self Esteem for Children
by Jeffrey Allen, M.Ed and Roger Klein, PsyD

     This fully researched program is used across the country by teachers, counselors, parents, and medical professionals as a preventive tool and intervention strategy. Easy to use and includes follow-up activities and discussion questions.
     Ready, Set, R.E.L.A.X. is based on a two year research project teaching children 5 to 12 years old positive self-talk, relaxation and cognitive coping strategies. 
The objectives of the program include:

  1. Teaching children the role of anxiety and relaxation and recognizing the physical signs of stress.
  2. Helping children identify the stressors in their lives and equipping them with problem solving responses and skills to initiate the relaxation response.
  3. Developing an appreciation of healing music.
    Results of the two year pilot program indicated significant gains in the experimental group’s achievement scores and self-esteem and significant decreases in self-report of depression and anxiety.
