CLEARWATER – The Golda Meir/Kent Jewish Center is offering the Strategies Overcoming Aquatic Phobias (S.O.A.P.) & Water program.

Maritza Correia, Olympic silver medalist and first minority female to make the Olympic swim team supports the program as it offers several Olympian effort swim scholarships to minority children.

Jeff Krieger, a mental health counselor and American Red Cross water safety instructor, who has been teaching special needs swimmers for more than 25 years, designed and directs this unique program. Participants, who suffer from varying degrees of fear, anxiety and phobias surrounding water, are introduced to the aquatic experience. Group counseling, technical information, behavior modification and relaxation techniques, water readiness skills, aqua phobic specific learn-to-swim skills and emotional support (in and out of the pool) are combined to allow participants of all ages to wade into an aquatic lifestyle and change their lives forever.

The highly successful program has been highlighted in television, radio and print media resources. The program is offered in small groups of four to six participants in a quiet setting. Participation is strictly confidential and family members are urged to get involved. Activities include dry land, classroom and in-the-water exercises.

S.O.A.P. & Water is available and adaptable to individuals of all ages. For details and registration, call Krieger at 736-1494.
