Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v13 n3 p193-199 Sep 2008
This study reports on an intervention involving massage, yoga and relaxation delivered to young children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. Children (n = 126) were invited to participate in the Self-discovery Programme (SDP) with parental consent. A total of 107 children aged 8-11 years completed the SDP and all measures. Children were allocated to a Control (n= 54) or Intervention (n = 53) group. The results indicate that children in the Intervention group showed improvements in self-confidence, social confidence, communication and contributions in class. Children in the Intervention group were noted by teachers to use skills learned on the SDP during the school day. (Contains 3 tables.)
