How to Hold a Two Inch Needle and Still Make a Child Smile

An award-winning nurse cracks the code on deflecting the terror that children feel when facing scary and often painful medical procedures.

"A vital tool for those who deal with children in fear, a must-read for parents and caregivers and all those who set up the institutions of healing." --Olson Huff, MD, American Academy of Pediatrics.

    ASHEVILLE, NC, September 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A nine-year-old boy in the emergency room was overly anxious about the intravenous line that needed to be inserted in his arm.

As a team of nurses huddled and discussed how best to do it, nurse Rob Luka quietly approached the boy and said, "Just a little pinch." The needle went in without a sound from the boy.

Fearless Medicine, Helping Children and Adults Overcome Fear in a Medical Setting: A Guide for Healthcare Professionals, Luka draws on his 30 years of nursing experience to tell parents and health professionals alike how to calm a child who is facing medical treatment.

Luka's methods are based in both science and spirit - the end must be medically successful, but the means to that end uses the tools of the heart and mind.

In each chapter, Luka breaks down the psychology of fear using parable and his own critically acclaimed methodology, showing you:

- Top 10 techniques you can learn to prevent fear of doctors.
- How the Law of Expectations can be used to redirect fear into empowerment.
- Are the words you're using helping to create more fear in you and your children?
- How to use body postures to reduce fear without saying a word-the secrets of non-verbal communication.
