April Tip of the Month from FOCUS (Families Over Coming Under Stress):
April is often the time of year that families start to prepare for school coming to an end, PCS season to begin, and transitions to warmer weather. As exciting as these changes can be, they can also be stressful. Do you and your family members have ways to manage emotions through these transitions? They can be as simple as taking slow deep breaths in, and releasing slow breaths out. In the FOCUS program, we create activities around deep breathing and other emotion regulation tools in order to strengthen family member’s abilities to cope with change!... Don’t just get by, get stronger!
