Family and Youth Wellness Coaching
EHCAP is hosting a Whats App group of professionals, volunteers and parents who are seeking innovative and joined up ways of working together. EHCAP is modelling on research by Center on the Developing Child, Harvard University. This involves moving away from the ‘identify and fix’ model toward ‘figuring out together what’s going on’. Research from old age care helps us know that substantive discussions with someone experienced and knowledgeable about daily concerns can in itself be transformative. We call this Wellness Coaching.
Over the last 20 years we have begun to understand the complex interplay between genetics and environment and how chronic inflammation caused by toxic stress effects human development. Research has shown that Adverse Childhood Experiences are linked with altered brain architecture (resulting in difficulties with impulse control and problem solving) as well as higher risk of developing diabetes, ischaemic heart disease and severe obesity.
As founder of EHCAP my vision is to take this knowledge and awareness into communities and in addition to build skills and capabilities by sharing straight forward psycho education tools such as Dan Siegel’s Hand Model metaphor for emotion regulation and John Gottman’s Emotion Coaching relationship style.
