Use of the Behaviour Management Colourometer® Tool
The colours of the Colourometer® can relate to choices that are made in any aspect of life and their consequences for health and general well-being. Link the choice to a colour and the opportunities for celebration on GREEN or change from RED through YELLOW can be explored discussed and if necessary, acted upon.
Using the Colourometer® is an innovative and precise way for people of any age to communicate the levels of their physical or emotional pain to health professionals. This is a tool no health professional, especially those working with children and young people, should be without.
Even more importantly, a record of colour choice in response to pain or emotional levels over a period of time provides an accurate picture of how levels of pain and emotions have changed.
When the patient sees, through a record of colour changes, how their pain has improved they will know they are getting better which in itself speeds recovery.
