These PDF collections are fun, easy to use and visual, and include live links to ‘first aid’ movement and music videos to support calm connection and relational wellbeing.
Based on trauma-informed movement and music therapy and delivered by registered therapists (physiotherapist/dance therapist, music therapist), these simple tools give practical ways for people to manage stress and anxiety in accessible and sustainable ways. Empowering with everyday actionable wellbeing tools can support people not only through times of crisis, but also gives resources for the future.
Through engaging and friendly 2-3 minute videos (filmed to be immersive and accessible on cell phones), this video library empowers people with simple ideas for ways to play, support their wellbeing, and connect with their communities during home isolation, or in times of added stress. These tools are suitable for all abilities and communities, and are inclusive of people living with mental health needs, disabilities, and neurodiversity.
Subscription to this series gives you immediate access to download all four of our printable PDF collections. Simply click on the cards within the PDF, and the link will take you straight to the private Youtube video with the activity. These PDFs are fun, easy to use and visual, and can be shared with whānau via text or email for ease of access. These pre-tailored collections have been designed to suit family, community or individual people's needs.
The four collections are:
· Play ideas with preschoolers
· Growing and learning with primary school aged tamariki
· Staying connected with rangatahi
· Resourcing yourself during isolation
An example of a video and description:
VIDEO 6: The ‘Baby Butterfly’ song – Based on trauma-informed therapy, and ways to calm the nervous system to support caregiver/tamariki co-regulation. Baby Butterfly is a widely used (and simple!) song and movement tool in the Tai Tokerau early education space, and provides a flexible framework for tamariki to recall their whakapapa, build on their sense of belonging, empower themselves with two simple ways to calm their tinana, and support a need for nurture in times of stress or isolation.
The realities of working and living through a global pandemic continue to affect all of us on a neuro-biological level. Collective stress responses are heightened and our tamariki are not immune to this. By addressing our own responses using movement, sound and rhythm, and sharing these with our young children, we enable change using the very system that is so affected by adversity. Understanding how to use our bodies and voices toward calm connection is an ever-present resource for resilience and empowerment. These tools have life-long application and we have seen this work create sustainable benefit for kaiako, health workers, tamariki and whānau.
All videos, while simple and family-friendly, are underpinned by:
· Trauma-informed theory and the developmental links between sound, rhythm, movement and relationship
· Co-regulation approaches that whānau can do together
· How people can mange their own stress responses to enable calm connection with their tamariki
· Aligns with Te Whāriki and Te Whare Tapa Whā as pathways for wellbeing
· Gives practical ways to build empowerment, belonging, contribution, communication and exploration for whānau and tamariki (Te Whāriki strands)
· Adaptable, creative music and dance therapy tools that are easy to pick up and use in everyday life
· Empowering whānau and tamariki to use their bodies and voices as a sustainable resource to calm
· Sensory balance and its role in wellbeing and sustainability for whānau
· Addressing whānau-specific needs and practices
This supports their understanding of co-regulation for calm connection with their tamariki, enabling ways to regulate their own nervous systems throughout their day.
