Part 1 – DNA-V basics tip sheets for parents, kids and professionals.
We have been working hard behind the scenes building a more developmentally appropriate model of psychological flexibility for kids.
We knew that we could not approach child ACT as we do with adults. There are just so many important pieces to development that we needed to add, like attachment, play, safety, etc. Our new model is called DNA-v, and it is a wholly developmental model of ACT for kids (well it isn’t just an ACT model, its really a contextual behavioural science model, but more on the geek side in our scientific publications section).
The tip sheets are written in parent speak, so you have a super easy resource that will guide your clinical work. You can use them with kids. You can also print them off and send home to parents so they know how to help their child. They’re perfect for the fridge. It’s all aimed at helping your families learn to build flexibility, one skill at a time.
Once you start using DNA-V with kids and teens, you’ll wonder how you ever did ACT for kids without it!!
