Lancaster City, Pennsylvania - Nov 28, 2023 - Author Marinely DaCosta Metzler, M.A., L.P.C., draws upon her rich life experiences to deliver a powerful resource for children and teens grappling with anxiety or depression in her latest book, "Beth and Seth Learn to Take a B.R.E.A.T.H." Born in Brazil and having overcome various obstacles in her own life, Metzler's genuine understanding of real-life challenges informs her therapeutic approach.
The book is designed to initiate a constructive dialogue, empowering individuals to explore their feelings and develop essential problem-solving skills. The acronym B.R.E.A.T.H. serves as a practical guide, encouraging readers to:
- Be aware of what they are feeling
- Recognize the triggers of their emotions
- Evaluate the impact on their body
- Act intentionally to calm themselves
- Think through available options and consider the consequences
- Hand-pick the best solution
Metzler emphasizes the importance of balancing emotions with facts, especially during stressful situations where individuals may tend to react automatically. The book encourages a shift from reactionary behavior to thoughtfulness, fostering healthier connections and promoting personal growth and harmony.
While the book serves as a valuable self-help tool, Metzler underscores that it is not a replacement for professional counseling, particularly for those dealing with difficult personalities or individuals struggling with mental health issues.
In a poignant narrative, "Beth and Seth Learn to Take a B.R.E.A.T.H." follows the journey of two characters, Beth and Seth, as they grapple with feelings of anger and fear, respectively. The story unfolds as a therapist helps them navigate their emotions effectively, providing readers with tangible examples of overcoming emotional challenges.
As the global pandemic has heightened mental health concerns, Metzler's book becomes a timely resource for parents, caregivers, and educators seeking to equip children and teens with essential self-awareness and coping skills.
