Bi-Tapp is a resource being used by students

There are many contributing factors that impact a student’s ability to effectively learn. School districts have developed new programs and hired more professionals to address the needs of the students.

Despite these efforts, teachers are still the ones carrying the majority of the load. In addition to their many other responsibilities, they are the ones who initially try to manage the situation when a student has become disruptive. They are often the first to help a student calm down after they have been triggered. It is not unusual to have several students struggle to focus on an assignment. Many students struggle with anxiety.

Active learning stops when we are anxious or upset

The majority of teachers report that if the disruption or distraction is mild, they can typically manage that situation. However, if the situation continues to escalate, learning often stops for the entire classroom. In those moments, a teacher is no longer teaching but is managing a situation.

Bi-Tapp is a calming resource

The majority of students have been taught skills to help them manage their big emotions in healthy ways. However, the more upset a student is, the less likely they are to remember to use the skills they have been taught.

Many schools are utilizing Bi-Tapp as a reliable resource for their students to access in moments of heightened stress and anxiety. One set of tappers can be utilized hundreds of times throughout the school year by many different students. An elementary teacher of 18 years stated, “Even I have used the tappers myself on the days I can tell my anxiety is higher than normal.”

Bi-Tapp is a cost effective resource that is being used by students of all ages from K-12. Students using the tappers have shown progress in the following areas:

  • Regulate emotions
  • Improve Focus
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Improve mindfulness skills

Bi-Tapp is a resource for people in recovery

Addiction is one of the most difficult things a person and their loved ones can go through. Being in recovery and maintaining sobriety takes incredible courage, vulnerability and persistence. I have spent my entire career working in the field of trauma resolution and have worked with many people who are in recovery to reprocess traumas they have experienced. There are two things I have learned while working with this population. First, there are no shortcuts to maintaining your sobriety. Second, there are many things that can trigger a relapse and it can happen very quickly.

Bi-Tapp is an excellent resource for people in recovery. The tappers are not a replacement for any part of treatment, but they are a tool that can augment and help in these ways:

  • Regulate emotions
  • Decrease stress levels
  • Manage triggers
  • Reduce pain
  • Improve sleep

Are you tired of feeling anxious and stressed? Try Bi-Tapp

Anyone who struggles with feeling anxious and/or stressed on a consistent basis knows that it can be exhausting. When we have anxious, worried thoughts that persist, it begins to take a toll on us mentally, emotionally and physically. We often have less patience in our relationships, our productivity goes down and we often have a hard time getting the rest we need.

It is well documented that anxiety is increasing among all age groups. As a result of this, programs have been developed and self-help books have been written to help us learn how to become more emotionally resilient. A common theme has emerged. If we can learn to effectively manage our stress, we tend to feel better and function better in all areas of our lives.
