"Ready, Set, R.E.L.A.X. teaches fun strategies for relaxation which can be used in the classroom to raise and teach a happy achieving child.”

“I can think of many uses for this program in a nursing/medical practice. Many times children are frightened in situations where they are not in control of their fate. Using relaxation would reduce anxiety and help them gain control.”

Professor, Cardinal Stritch University


“This is not just a program to do in the classroom, but it also includes the parents and has the potential to touch the family.”

Dr. Andy Pojman

A Research Based Program of Relaxation, Learning and Self Esteem for Children (5 - 12 years old)

by the authors of the widely used program "RELAX.calm."

-- Jeffrey S. Allen, M.Ed. and Roger J. Klein, Psy.D.

This fully researched program is used across the country by teachers, counselors, parents, and medical professionals as a preventive tool and intervention strategy. Easy to use and includes follow-up activities and discussion questions.


Ready, Set, R.E.L.A.X. is based on a two year research project teaching children 5 to 12 years old positive self-talk, relaxation and cognitive coping strategies. 
The objectives of the program include:

  1. Teaching children the role of anxiety and relaxation and recognizing the physical signs of stress.

  2. Helping children identify the stressors in their lives and equipping them with problem solving responses and skills to initiate the relaxation response.

  3. Developing an appreciation of healing music.
    Results of the two year pilot program indicated significant gains in the experimental group’s achievement scores and self-esteem and significant decreases in self-report of depression and anxiety.

The 66 scripts focus on the following themes:
R = Releasing Tension
E = Enjoying Life
L = Learning
A = Appreciating Others
X = X-panding Your Knowledge
