My colleagues, Kim Hager and Maria Martinez, are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions (including developmental diagnoses), caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians, and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The study is approved by the IRB and the survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it.

The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. Thank you and we appreciate all your help!

This week is play therapy week!

Play is truly serious business: Our children learn how to understand and navigate the world around them through play.

Play benefits the development of the whole child. Play benefits children socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively.

Play therapists use the power of play to help children explore their feelings and understand themselves better. But, the benefits of play go far beyond the play therapy room.

Taking time to play with our kids is one of the best things we can do for them. Make time for play!

Iowa Family Counseling is proud to join a statewide coalition to end human trafficking in Iowa. The Iowa Businesses Against Trafficking (IBAT) initiative is spearheaded by the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office. The goal is to have Iowa’s business community raise awareness and help prevent human trafficking.

Membership in IBAT is open to any business or nonprofit organization that operates in the State of Iowa and shares a commitment to taking steps to promote awareness of human trafficking and the Iowa Safe at Home program. Safe at Home is an address confidentiality program for survivors of human trafficking and other violent crimes.

Businesses that join IBAT are asked to complete two tasks each year: “Learn Something,” and “Do Something.” Businesses will commit to “Learn Something” by educating employees, customers, and industry partners on the signs and impact of human trafficking in Iowa. Businesses can “Do Something” by empowering more people to take action to prevent human trafficking in Iowa.

IBAT was launched by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate in January 2022.

“I’m very pleased to have Iowa Family Counseling join the army we are building to combat human trafficking," Secretary Pate said. “By joining IBAT, they’ve shown a commitment to their community and helping others. Together, we can make a huge difference and become a model for the rest of the nation.”

It's okay to accept help.
It's okay to ask for help.

Sometimes we are able to give.
Sometimes we need to receive.❤

This is one of our favorite grounding techniques at Iowa Family Counseling.

We can all find ourselves in moments where we feel overwhelmed by stress, anxiety, or other negative emotions. Grounding techniques can help us refocus on the present and calm our body and brains, so we can focus on healing and recovery.

Take a few deep belly breaths and focus with on each of your senses. Name the things you see, feel, hear, smell, and taste.

It's OK to grab a piece of candy or a peppermint to smell and taste! 🍬

🌞❄Yes, it is winter and winter can be a very dreary season. Luckily for us in the Midwest, we are often blessed with days of bright sunshine.

Take advantage of these days to soak up the warmth and mental health benefits of our sun's rays!

A few minutes (or more) of sunshine can make a big difference this time of year. ❄🌞

Did you know that today is National Vision Board Day?! We didn’t either, but seems like a great reason to make one now!

Vision boards are visual representations of your goals and will help you do 3 main things:
1- Narrow your focus down to a specific goal or goals.
2- Visualize and practice how to achieve those goals.
3- Stay focused on that goal.

It should include:
*Affirmations; declarative words and statements that remind who you are and what you’re capable of
*Inspiration; quotes, images and photos of people who motivate you
&
*Timeline; realistic, yet challenging

If you’re like Elisa, and not particularly crafty, there are numerous templates and websites online you can access to build, create and print yours out!
