Helping kids, parents & teachers have better days

Your donation will go towards building an app for children, parents and teachers that complements a program for teachers [Tapping in the Classroom - developed by Dr. Peta Stapleton] to bring an evidence-based stress reduction and anxiety management technique into classrooms around the world.  Children will have a tool in their hands to help them deal more effectively with the stressors [i.e. test & social anxiety, bullying, confidence]  that they will encounter navigating their daily lives.  Rather than isolate children and expect them to calm down and figure things out on their own, without any ways or means to help or instruct them, I want to give them a path forward that they can easily follow and adopt.  

The funds are needed to give the go-ahead to the app developer to get started, so I am asking as soon as possible.  I would like to have this app available this year and I would you to think the sooner the better to help these children, parents and teachers have better days. 

I developed the evidence-based H-A-P-P-Ē program that successfully addresses the growing need for social, emotional and mental health & well-being of students, teachers and school administrators.  There is a digital interface with parents who chose to opt in to support their children’s health, growth and success.  The program was designed to be easily integrated into the school day and provide teachers with on-going support through a variety of avenues both digital and non-digital.  

One of the most thrilling components of this platform is an evidence-based tool to help reduce stress and teach participants how to effectively deal with anxiety.  It is a practice that is widely accepted in European schools [some governments have mandated it and provided funding for teachers to integrate the practice into the classrooms] and has only begun to be offered in the states on a reactive basis.  This program is designed as a holistic approach to overall well-being and academic/life success.

Your donation will help me continue to build this program that will have far reaching positive impact/effects on the lives and well-being of those people that are touched by it.

I know that in order to be successful and continue growing my program that it takes a village to raise H-A-P-P-Ē [pronounced 'happy'], healthy and successful children, teachers and parents.  I cannot begin to express my gratitude for your kindness, support and belief in that what I/we are trying to accomplish by bringing to life through this app a gift that will benefit all who engage with it.

My name is John Beiter, Ph.D. - I am licensed psychologist located in Michigan.  Dr. Peta Stapleton [located in Gold Coast, AU] and I are working together to bring about the best possible outcome.

Thank you again for your support!
