Guided Imagery Resources

Looking for some fun guided imagery tools to share with your child?  This is the book for you:  The Power of Your Child’s Imagination by Charlotte Reznick, Ph.D.   Dr. Reznick,, shares nine essential tools that parents and educators can use to support children in applying guided imagery to heal stress and/or strong emotions and to support healing and health, emotionally, physically, and psychologically.  She has presented the tools in a clear, easy to apply manner.  The tools are developmentally sensitive to a child’s growth and understanding and are fun and engaging.

Another book that I love is Guided Imagery for Healing Children and Teens by Ellen Curran.  She does an excellent job at explaining the various stages of the guided imagery process and the science behind why it works.  Her guided imagery scripts are easy to read and are divided between younger children and those for teens.  The scripts are specifically oriented toward supporting children with a physical health concern, but could be easily adapted for other uses.  Next time you want to support your child who isn’t feeling well, try out this book to support him in relaxation while he heals.




  1. I would highly recommend this book for any educator who works with children who can benefit from learning relaxation strategies. I am a school psychologist and use many of the strategies recommended in this book during my counseling sessions. The kids love them! I also attended a workshop where I met Ms. Reznick and she is such a sweet and kind woman!

  2. I would also recommend the Relax Kids meditation books – they have so many beautiful meditations for children. My two have used them for years and I use it with my class of 7 year olds and they love it.

  3. These are great recommendations for children, who certainly CAN meditate and make use of guided imagery. In fact, I went into the field after hearing the story of young Garrett Porter, a 9-year-old with an inoperable brain tumor who healed himself through visualizaiton. It’s a story worth reading, at Kids have tremendous power in this area–we just have to help them tap it.
