Butterflies & Stress

With this project, we aim to empower children in stressful conditions (e.g., health-related stress, financial stress, bullying, etc.) with an internal coping resource, commonly referred to as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Children learn that, while they may not be able to control the environment, they do have some power over their response to it. Thus, MBSR has been shown to build resilience and improve outcomes... an 'innoculation' that helps protect against stress. All children, whether highly stressed or simply dealing with the stress of growing up, can benefit from additional coping skills.

Speak a language that’s not yet here?

Elfenworks is currently looking for languages to support the The Butterfly Project. So far, we’ve covered many of the most common languages found in homeless shelters, but this project has worldwide reach and there are still chasms within our solution… we have only scratched the surface with the number of languages we provide to date. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us first. This will help avoid any duplicative efforts and allow us to get you the script (in English) and provide you with the necessary release forms. We can also advise on some recording methods that may result in a better recording.
