Invite: Foreign Speaker Talks on “Science of Learning and BrainFitness”

>> Thursday, August 2, 2012

Dear Guidance Heads, Guidance Counselors and Psychometricians,


We are pleased to share with you the “BRAIN FITNESS: A Neuro-Scientific Approach to Accelerate Learning.” A brain’s fitness level influences the five pillars of cognitive development namely: (1) attention, (2) visual, (3) auditory, (4) sensory-motor, and (5) social-emotional. These five brain pillars ultimately affect how we acquire new knowledge, retain information, apply learning, and perform to excellence.

Fit Brains Learn Better!

Brain fitness is about having superior mental processes arising from more efficient and robust connections in the brain. It involves activities that strengthen existing and build new brain connections.

BrainFit Studio, the leading provider of neuroscience-based brain fitness programs in Asia, has opened a branch in the Philippines. BrainFit Studio originated in Singapore and has existed for 10 years in the region with over 5000+ databased results from programs conducted across Asia.

One of our key thrusts is on continuing education in brain science. We will be very honored if we can have the chance to impart the latest findings on brain plasticity and how certain programs can help accelerate a child's learning capacity as well as help address opportunity areas in learning.

Our resource person from Singapore, Ms Regina Chin, is a well-known speaker in the area of Brain Fitness and she will be in Manila for a series of speaking engagements from September 12 to 14, 2011. The theme of her talk will be “Science of Learning and Brain Fitness”. Last year, we also had foreign resource persons at well-attended parents’ meetings in the following schools: Xavier School, Immaculate Conception Academy, Makati Gospel, Makati Hope, St. Jude Catholic High School, and La Salle Greenhills, to name a few.

As we have worked out some schedules during her visit, we are interested to know if your school may be able to schedule a slot between September 12 and 14 for her to talk with the parents of your students. Please feel free to give us a call at 725-8500, 668-2719, 0917-599-1992 or email us at brainfitph@yahoo.com.

Thank you very much and hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Iris Nacionales Center Manager

Separation Anxiety Disorder At A Glance

>> Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Article Source: http://www.medicinenet.com/separation_anxiety/page5.htm#summary 

 * Infants show stranger anxiety by crying when someone unfamiliar  approaches. It is a normal stage of development that usually starts at about 8 months of age and abates by 2 years of age.
* Separation anxiety as a normal life stage first develops at about 7 months of age, once object permanence has been established. It is at its strongest at 10-18 months of age and usually subsides by 3 years of age.

* Separation anxiety disorder begins in childhood and is characterized by worrying out of proportion to the situation of temporarily leaving home or otherwise separating from loved ones.

* Approximately 4%-5% of children and adolescents suffer from separation anxiety disorder.

* Examples of separation anxiety disorder symptoms include school refusal or school phobia, resistance to going to bed at night, and physical complaints in reaction to actual or anticipated separation from primary caretakers.

* Professionals trained and experienced in assessing mental health in children will likely interview the child and parents separately and ask about symptoms of anxiety, screen for other mental-health conditions, and recommend the child receive a full medical evaluation.

* Separation anxiety disorder is likely caused by the combination of genetic and environmental vulnerabilities. Risk factors include low socioeconomic status, family histories of anxiety, and mothers who were stressed during pregnancy.

* A majority of children with separation anxiety disorder have school refusal as a symptom. Up to 80% of children who refuse school qualify for a diagnosis of separation anxiety disorder.

* Counseling is usually considered the best treatment method compared to medications. Types of counseling used to treat separation anxiety disorder include behavioral, cognitive, and individual psychotherapies, as well as parent counseling and guiding teachers on how to help the child.

* SSRIs like fluvoxamine are considered the safest and most effective medications to treat separation anxiety disorder, followed by tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), with benzodiazepines as a last resort.

* Children with separation anxiety disorder are at higher risk for developing other mental-health problems, particularly anxiety disorders
