    Does Your Job Suit Your Personality Type?

    Bel found her expression through Art Therapy only after a career that began with an interest in film making but then evolved into working with youth in schools and women in children in paediatric and palliative care.
    Art Therapy became the perfect tonic for her mixing personal passion with a profession that makes a difference.
    Bel finds some to who enroll in her art therapy classes have little confidence in their artistic abilities – but they’re often the ones who need precisely that kind of therapy the most. It’s been missing from their lives. People find reflection, insight, and expression. 
    Corporations hire her to provide classes for their teams. And what begin a team building exercises through art, sometimes become powerful experiences that help shape business strategies as people embrace the use of hands-on experience with creative exploration to express things they can’t normally express. Problems are uncovered and solutions found.
    Art helps people go beyond the cognitive.
    Bel shares her story in this episode hoping it might help you find how your passion and your profession can become one.

    These are some of the things toddlers have tantrums over. 
    Most young children have tantrums and they aren’t an indication your parenting skills are lacking. You can try to prevent them by observing your child’s emotions and helping them reduce stress but when it comes to reacting? Well that’s the trickiest part. 
    In this episode Kate talks with Maryann Lomax with some strong ideas on how to prevent and respond to the tantrums our children throw… without throwing our own tantrums.

    We want them to know the difference between they’ve bumped their elbow and when they really need to ask for help.
    Teaching our kids to be resilient will help them now and forever as they grow into strong adults, and maybe help their own kids learn resilience some day to succeed in the World
    In this episode Kate talks with Maryann Lomax about ways to help our kids learn resilience, and maybe a few ways we can become stronger too.

    Five Parenting Styles Identified in Child Psychology

    Five Parenting Styles Identified in Child Psychology

    These are the Five Parenting Styles currently used in Child Psychology today based on the work of Diana Baumrind, and Stanford researchers Eleanor Maccoby and John Martin.
     
    The Supporting and Nurturing parent.
    The Authoritarian parent.
    The Permissive parent.
    The Disengaged or Uninvolved parent.
    The Overinvolved or “Helicopter” parent. 

    These are the five styles identified by child psychologists. Of course, we all think we’re the supporting and nurturing parent… most of the time…
    If we’re honest though we know we have weaknesses or weak moments.
    How do we detect these behaviours in ourselves and how can we make the adjustments we need to make? 

    In this episode Kate talks with an expert in early learning and development about the parenting styles that can be the most helpful for you.

    PPP 019: Break the Patterns of Life Like an ENFP

    PPP 019: Break the Patterns of Life Like an ENFP

    Normy sure knows how to live. He grew up in Canada, well no it was the United States, but then Canada again, then Europe, then the Middle East, then Korea, then Australia…
    While most of us find a comfortable rhythm to what we’re doing that kind of lifestyle where you’re always changing thing does sound kind of … exotic? It appeals most to a certain personality type – an ENFP.
    In this episode Kate talks with her pal Normy who dared to imagine living the kind of life he really wanted to live. Even when he was a teenager, in Grade 11 he forged his parents’ signatures so he could travel to Europe. They finally tracked him down in Greece.
    Normy hasn’t been everywhere… but it’s on his list.
