Documentary A Skill for Life (with English subtitles)

In our societies, stress has become a scourge. It was long believed, and some still believe, that children are not affected by stress. In 1988 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, nurse Renée Guimond Plourde noted that her 6-year-old son, who was just starting school, was suffering from symptoms related to stress. In the absence of literature on the subject, parents, in cooperation with administrators and teachers at the school, began to seek ways to help children manage their stress in everyday life. The children themselves chose visualization as a stress-management tool. Twenty-five years and several thousand children later, the experiment continues and has been expanded to other New Brunswick schools. There has also been growing interest at the international level. This documentary looks at the history of the project and its future prospects.
