“After reviewing the research on the effectiveness of imagery, relaxation, and music in reducing stress, RELAX.calm provides the clinician with scripts designed to arm adolescents with self calming and esteem enhancing positive self-talk skills.

RELAX.calm is a valuable resource for professionals and parents aware of the power of imagery in helping teens make positive changes.”

“Relax.calm ought to be made available to every young person (as well as adults) regardless of the frequency in which they are exposed to stressful situations. It is a wonderfully beneficial way to manage everyday common stressors as well as those unanticipated, or more severe stress inducing incidents we often cannot prevent. When words are not helping Relax.Calm does.”

Dr. William Steele, PsyD, MSW
Founder, National Institute of Trauma and Loss in Children


“Stress, anxiety, and depression are, unfortunately, all too common in the lives of our teens. RELAX.calm is a must for anyone who works with or cares for this vulnerable age group. The foundation of this book is rooted in prevention; feeding the branches of empowerment, hope and relief. From identifying the symptoms of stress and its related concerns, to developing a stronger sense of self; the techniques, strategies and practical tools for managing life’s challenges will help you take a teen to a place where they are able to manage their own stressors in healthy and positive ways.”

Mary McHenry MSW
Coordinator and Professor, Child and Youth Worker Program, Lambton College


"I just had to take a minute to let you know that the book arrived safely and I have been completely thrilled. I was able to put it to use immediately and I think it is an outstanding resource. The teens have something new and different that they are receptive to. My supervisees are clamoring to borrow it - I tell them it is in the "not yet" phase of book ownership. : ) THANK YOU and kudos for outstanding work!"
