Do you tend to avoid life transitions and hope they’ll go away? If you answered ‘yes’ then that’s the first step to more easy and joy! What I mean is, you answered honestly, and that brings freedom. Visible Transitions methodology begets a kind and creative truth face-off.
Here’s what one clients says about easing into the truth:
“After my two children participated in Janet’s photo walkabouts, I noticed a difference in how they related to situations that they feared, judged or condemned. For example, their mother and I split up about a year ago, and I witnessed them capturing photos in nature that represented their unspoken angst and desire for amicable interactions between the family and especially between us parents. Their artistic use of the camera through the modality of Visible Transitions gave me insight into how to better approach my relationship with their mother. “ ~ Jahmal Kennard
Most of you know my immeasurable passion for working with the young people which took flight several years ago whilst living in Los Angeles. I’m a trained artist teacher for emotionally disturbed and at-risk youth at an award winning non-profit in LA, www.insideoutca.org. Check them out!
That said, I often work with parents and children who I’ve asked following questions:
Is your teenager being accepted by the opposite sex? Is your child coming home crying because she or he was not invited to the birthday party? Is your child having difficulty excelling in school and studies?
You may be asking, “How are these questions and situations related to transition?” to which I answer: Most children suffering these experiences are of pubescent age. The impact of a child’s emotional development in this rite of passage is often overlooked.
There are four types of Transitions in adolescence. One is BIOLOGICAL, or more popularly known as puberty. The immediate impact of puberty on the adolescent’s self-image and mood may be very modest, the timing of physical maturation does affect the teen’s social and emotional development in important ways.
Why suffer any longer? If you resonate with these questions, contact me for a consultation so we can reduce resistance, stress and anxiety for you and your child. You’ll walk away from the session knowing how to create more ease and joy in transition, now and for years to come!
