Parent/child - Give me strength

Parent/child - Give me strength

This is an intervention aimed at students who suffer from low confidence, anxiety, phobias and are generally lost in their world. It differs from many of the programmes because it focuses more on them and how they navigate their world; aiming to establish triggers to their behaviour and addressing them, giving the student skills and tools to escape from their negative world. PARENTAL NOTES These students tend to be unsure of themselves and extremely vulnerable; so managing them through this intervention programme will be a delicate task. Your will know what your child goes through a little, but maybe not their triggers and thought processes. In order to effect change we must consider all things which contribute to a situation including our part in any one situation; in one of the most important relationships of your life you can help or hinder without realising. The ultimate aim is to effect positive change and instill more confidence in your child; addressing their issues and offering support and guidance where needed. WHY THIS INTERVENTION? Does your child exhibit any of the following behaviours? Withdrawn/loner Expressing fear or anxiety Cries often Expresses worthlessness Self injury/harm Avoids certain situations due to anxiety **This is a difficult one as some of these children ‘hide’ very well and can be highly functioning students apart from certain aspects of their life. I worked with one student who was in the ‘popular’ gang, but who suffered from one of the worst cases of anxiety and phobia I have ever seen. So just bear in mind that some may ‘act out’ and exhibit different behaviours. LENGTH OF INTERVENTION The sessions are divided into roughly one hour x 6 weeks plus a follow up session, however, depending on the age and concentration level of your child you could split the sessions further. Each session will have 3 worksheets to complete, you could do one at a time. BASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTION SESSIONS How strong am I? - Getting to know you basics, with an emphasis on feelings and emotions. What pushes my buttons? - Seeking out possible negative events and issues which may have influenced the anxiety and phobia. What is my go to response? - Establishing what the ‘normal’ behaviour is and discussing alternatives. What are my triggers? - Looking at what/who may be triggering the situations, feelings and difficulties. How do I want to be? - Continuing the reframing and alternative positive framework for the future. The way forward - Cementing the positives and making plans for future issues. Follow up - General, but ongoing positive focus.

My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

My experiences with Military Life, Defense Contractor positions and the Contractor Lifestyle

Old Sarge here with a few words of wisdom. During the past several weeks there has been a drastic increase in violence towards police. As a retired police officer, I am appalled by what I have witnessed. To date it seems that the media as a whole has turned a blind eye towards the actual good that police perform and instead has focused on their own agenda. What about the police officer that digs in his pocket to help someone in need? Not newsworthy. The police officer that pulls a family from a burning building before the fire department arrives? Nope, they don’t make the headlines. The police officer that volunteers their time to assist community development? These things don’t get any published acknowledgment, so it’s like they don’t exist. And this isn’t even the first time in recent memory things went down this path. Let me tell you a story from my life in a blue uniform. In 1992, I was a young Police Sgt responding to a large fight in progress. This was 2 weeks after the riots in Los Angeles that happened in response to the Rodney King verdict. The never ending press coverage showing mob mentality was deeply etched in everyone’s minds. You can reason with an individual but when you get a group together, you get a mob mentality that can’t be reasoned with. I arrived at the scene and found there was a violent mob of approximately 300 people. This was not a mob attacking random individuals though. They werent burning and looting buildings. This was two rival fraternities that decided to have a rumble. They were battering each other with sticks and bats and batons. There were injured and bloody people everywhere.
