    How to Master Your Difficult Feelings with Joan Rosenberg, PhD

    Dr. Joan Rosenberg is a cutting-edge psychologist, speaker and trainer. She is a two-time TEDx speaker and the author of 90 Seconds to a LIfe You Love.
    Most of us are not comfortable with our unpleasant feelings. We tend to avoid, numb out or distract ourselves from feeling their discomfort. 
    Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming and uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, resilience and authenticity. Yet when we disconnect or distract from these feelings we move away from confidence, health, desired pursuits ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.

    Parenting Your Challenging Child with Dr. Ross Greene

    Parenting Your Challenging Child with Dr. Ross Greene

    How do you feel when you are faced with challenging behaviors such as screaming, crying, kicking, hitting, swearing, biting, spitting...Do you feel angry, helpless, overwhelmed when your child outright doesn’t listen, cooperate and shows defiance? Do you want to know how you can get them to do things without rewards and punishments? Solve problems collaboratively rather than unilaterally and proactively rather than reactively.

Truly for making this available and a free resource. These podcasts are truly packed with gems. I appreciate this podcast first for the intergeneration fact. It’s so supportive to knowing and I appreciate putting Anna on when I need a friend in the midst of mothering for knowledge and reflection.
