Press Release (ePRNews.com) - FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Mar 06, 2018 - We are all looking for healthier ways to help our children modify their behavior and emotions when they feel overwhelmed. Dr. Nicole’ Felton, Ph.D. has spent the last twenty-five years researching color and the effect it has on behavior and emotions in children. The Color of Me Movement helps parents, caregivers, and mental health professionals learn more about how color impacts a child’s behavior and emotions and helps modify their reactions when they lack the ability to self-regulate.
According to the Center for Disease Control and the National Alliance on Mental Illness about 20% of our youth under the age of 18 have or will have a mental health issue. These issues include but are not limited to ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s, Anxiety, OCD, ODD, Food Aversion, Depression, Tourette’s Syndrome, and Giftedness with ADHD and OCD thoughts and behaviors. Unfortunately, children lack the ability to demonstrate positive change through other therapeutic measures and cannot communicate their feelings. If we are not able to address behavior and emotional problems in children, these behaviors will negatively affect their adulthood in the form of substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, and antisocial behaviors.
The Color of Me Movement begins with an informational research-based guidebook in a series of self-help and parent assisted work books on several types of childhood behavior and emotional disorders. It is paired with journals to help parents, caregivers, and professionals document behaviors and emotions in children as they improve. This series also includes pbtv Focus Point Art designed with specific behavior and emotional disorders in mind.
If you are a parent or work with children with behavior and emotional issues you will want to make this movement a part of your self-help collection. ” The Color of Me Movement provides its readers with an avenue to help change negative behaviors by introducing a healthy stimulus in the child’s personal space via appropriate color palette. It has no participation requirement for the child allowing more natural facilitation in the process of changing negative behavior” Dr. Felton
