Preschool and schoolAge children

Young children (typically ages 0-3 years) are dependent on their parents for administering medications and for following medical recommendations. For these children, nonadherence is related to the caretaker's inability to follow recommendations. As children grow older, it is increasingly important for clinicians to take into account the interaction between caretaker and child, childrearing practices, patient temperament, and the role of any existing disability when responding to nonadherence to treatment regimens (Garrison et al. 1990). As children become increasingly autonomous, child and caretaker conflicts can emerge that lead to nonadherent behaviors. Cognitive-behavioral strategies for children and their caretakers become useful in approaching these difficulties with school-age children.

Exploring EFT

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
