WHAT IS THE BODY LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM?
The Body Life Skills series offers a simple, practical, user friendly and life changing 3-step process bringing about lasting behaviour change.
To create lasting behaviour change we must be willing to identify the reason why the behaviour is occurring.
The Body Life Skills program understands that all unwanted behaviour is a result of anxiety first.
What is anxiety?
The definition for anxiety used throughout the Body Life Skills program is:
“Anxiety is not feeling like you have the skills to respond to what life is presenting at any given moment.”
~ Tanya Curtis
This translates to:
Anxiety ~ is what is felt in and expressed from the BODY
Not feeling equipped ~ is feeling that you do not have the required SKILLS
What is in front of you ~ LIFE
With this understanding we embrace that:
All unwanted behaviours, words, thoughts or feelings expressed from any person’s body occur as a result of a person perceiving they do not have the required skills to respond to what life has presented to them at any given moment.
When a person feels they have the required skills to respond to what life is presenting, their body is more likely to express using wanted behaviours, words, thoughts and feelings.
Thus, the Body Life Skills Program is about supporting people to:
Identify when a body (yours or another person's) is reacting (using unwanted behaviours) in response to life (the reason for behaviour)
Identify the reason … the part of life the person feels they do not have all the required skills to respond to
Learn the skills so they feel equipped and ready to commit to partaking in life to their full capacity
When implemented successfully, the Body Life Skills program will bring about positive and lasting change for individuals, families, groups, organisations and government departments working in the fields of behaviour management, mental health, disability, justice, education and psychological well-being, even in cases when other attempts have failed.
