"I like the Silva course because I know it will help me in my future"
Luca Mastrofini, Italy
Change Your Thinking, Change Your Brain

Our children are exposed today to innumerable risks, dangers and stressors.

Growing up in an environment that is emphasizing a lot of things that are not at all beneficial to the natural growth of our children can have significant and detrimental effects towards ADD, ADHD, bullying, and trauma. 

Dr. Aretoula Fullam, is a scientist with expertise in human development from childhood to adulthood.  She researched the development of internal working models and how these models are activated in life from events that are not in harmony or in balance with the developing brain of children. 

The ability to manage stress helps children remain resilient in school, homework, concentration, learning and memory. 

Dr. Fullam will teach your children to master their innate ability to remain healthy, highly motivated, accomplish their homework and goals, stop hyperactivity, increase their ability to concentrate and remain focused, develop self assertiveness, and overcome peer pressure, bullying and uncomfortable events that cause their self-esteem to plummet.

In this workshop your child will learn the following:

The benefits of developing and understanding positive thought
The development of leadership skills.
The development of focus and concentration and passing exams with As
The secrets of achieving goals easily and effortlessly
To relax and manage stress, worries, anxieties and fears
Important steps to correct and smart spelling 
Creative problem solving
Reviewing, recalling and memorizing lessons.
Listening and learning skills
Reading skills with concentration and focus
To say NO to peer pressure and still have friends
To improve memory and superior processing of school work
Improve sports abilities
Manage hyperactivity and ADHD through meditation and visualization
Manage ADD with meditation and visualization
Eliminate stress, hyperactivity, inattention
Learn to communicate with parents, friends and peers

Executive Control is one of the very few skills in life that are as important compared with the ability to exert control over the Executive Center of one's brain.  Results from research studies show that children with the ability to remain focused on a goal, while filtering out irrelevant stimuli, stressors and unnecessary information they are being subjected to, especially ignoring stray impulses, are more likely to succeed in life and school and do better as adults in work and life  (Monitor, May 2011, A publication of the APA).  The Children's Seminar with Dr. Aretoula Fullam can help children cultivate these essential cognitive skills and mental development, and most importantly maintain them as adults.  A growing body of research and evidence is showing and suggests that these mental skills can change not only behavior, but the structure and chemistry of the brain itself. It is really an applied science in brain development and the plasticity of the brain. 
"Today, as always, teenagers have a lot of important decisions to make. 'Do I get in that car with my friends even though I know they've been drinking?' 'My classmates are all trying drugs, should I try them too so that I'm not let out?' These are just a few of the more critical ones. Then, there are the everyday choices tht could make a big difference later in life, like: 'What courses should I take?' 'Is he/she the right person for me?' 'What college should I go to?' Thinking back at my own teenage years and the choices I made without having Silva yet as a guide to help me, I decided that I wanted more for my son. While Luca (age 11), and I were in New Jersey visiting my mom, I arranged with Dr. Fullam to give Luca a training session. I was amazed at how good his concentration was. He sat there from 9 am till 6 pm for two straight days listening to every word she said. At the end of the course he had already developed his ESP guessing not only the objects we had put in a closed bag but also telling us which object we planned to hide in the bag next! I am so glad I have given this gift to my son. He will soon reach the adolescent years and will start to make most of his own decisions. I am glad he can now use his own inner judgement to make the right choices. Thanks Dr. Fullam for your part in this!

Luca's mom.

Your child will be the one to create the life he/she wants rather than be a victim of the circumstances and reacting to them. Give the opportunity to your child to develop a life based on the foundation of proven values and a life based on effortless growth embracing their authentic self. 

Dr. Fullam, a psychologist with expertise in child development, mental representations that guide our lives, and a certified Instructor of the Silva Method of New Jersey, offers you this unique opportunity to enable your child to direct the natural power of creativity and imagination that they already possess. The untrained person is processing information based on mental representations created from earlier experience. These Internal Working Models (IWMs) can help your child be successful or mediocre. These IWMs if activated from present situations perceived as threats rather than challenges will create a life of struggle. If your child opens his/her awareness to the infinite possibilities of creative solutions, you and your child will be very happy, satisfied and joyful from the many successes. Help your child create an IWM based on security, and knowledge that he/she is not his behavior or his/her body but instead, a being of love manifesting a magnificent reality that surpasses any wild dream! By harnessing this internal power of the subconscious, they can apply their charismatic skills and purpose to achieve the goals that are best for them and Humanity. Would you like to enable your child to claim the success that is his/her birthright? The Silva Children's Course will guide your child in using their inherent skills and genius to make their lives personally, socially and professionally rewarding. It will be like having a guardian angel around them all the time, or even better, having a direct communication with the Source of Everything, at will! Are you ready for it!

The Silva Method of Stress Management and Mind Development is a program that gives the participant simple step-by-step techniques to develop mental skills such as relaxation, imagination, concentration, focused attention, memory, intuition and creative problem solving. It strengthens the self-esteem and self-worth of the children to become resilient, responsible and successful in their lives.

Research to develop the Silva Method began in Laredo, Texas in 1944. Dr. Jose Silva's original purpose was to find ways to help his children improve their ability to concentrate and to remember lessons, so that they could learn more and make better grades at school.

In his continued research, Dr. Silva worked with children who had learning difficulties as well as those who wanted to improve their learning aptitude. He questioned the statement that a person's initial I.Q., fluctuates only five points in either direction. In the Graduate Lecture Series Manual (1969), he states that:

"the measurement of intelligence depends upon solving problems. If people could become better problem-solving individuals, the I.Q., test would become simpler for them. Besides the goal of mental acuity, there always remains the possibility of emotional blocks, nervousness, tension, over-eagerness to met predetermined standards, and many other factors that would hamper the ability of test taking.
Subjective factors had been neglected in favour of a measurable performance which might only tell part of the story. "

The Silva Method for Children's Seminar provides the tools so no child will ever feel the above mentioned blocks, but instead reach their fullest potential learning to apply very simple steps and mental tools to get them successfully anywhere they want to go in life and meet any situation they encounter successfully.

In the Silva Method Seminar children learn skills for life and benefit from:

* A lifetime gift of stress management and inner peace.

* A lifetime gift of empowerment to achieve one's potential in all areas of life.

* A lifetime gift of self-esteem, self-empowerment and self-appreciation that comes from achieving excellence with memory and learning skills.

* A lifetime gift of self-control with no desire or need for overeating, smoking, alcohol, street drugs and habits that lead to troubled life.

* A lifetime gift of skills for creative thinking and intuition that are valuable for finding solutions to all areas of life.

* A lifetime gift of an inner wisdom that comes when they enhance their intuitive awareness.

One of the most important creative figures of the twentieth century, one of interest to psychologists and inventors, is R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), who long championed the cause of intuition. He believed it to be a principal tool of humankind in all of its endeavors. ...Fuller recognized that many of the major scientific breakthroughs from the time of ancient Greece onward were the result of what he identified as intuitive insights, and he predicted that such insights would continue to contribute to future conceptual and psychological advances.
