    The Uncontrollable Child with Matis Miller

    How many times have you found yourself deeply effected by your child’s reaction to the world?

    How can you work with self and kid(s) to be more conscious and reach in for deep empathy  to shift the moment?

    Matis Miller is a Cognitive Behavioral  Therapist and founder of The Center for Cognitive  & Behavioral Therapy of New Jersey and author of The Uncontrollable Child - Understand & Control Your Child’s Disruptive Moods with Dialectical Therapy Skills joins us this week with answers and tips and tricks straight from his book and extensive experience.

    Matis’ book is an incredible guide for for us all, regardless of your story  it will transform your parenting experience as this conversation did for me.

    An incredibly grounded and wise old souled man, Matis brings clarity, validation and sheds new light on the darker corners of parenting.

    Matis Miller

    Matis Miller is a clinician with expertise practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in various settings, with a wide range of psychiatric disorders. He is certified in CBT through the Academy of Cognitive Therapy (ACT). He has completed the Intensive Extramural Training Program at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, led by Aaron T. Beck, MD. Additionally, Matis is Intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and was awarded the newly developed certification from the DBT-Linehan Board of Certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Matis is well-versed in evidence-based psychotherapies and lectures widely on topics related to CBT and DBT.
    Matis is the founder, director, and supervisor of The Center for Cognitive & Behavioral Therapy of New Jersey, a private group practice focusing on using various evidence-based therapeutic models to provide the most effective care.
    His specialties include anxiety, mood, and personality disorders.
    Matis's new book, The Uncontrollable Child, is based on the concepts and skills of dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), a therapeutic model that broadens the mind and worldview.
    DBT and the concepts outlined in The Uncontrollable Child are highly effective for children who struggle with impulse control and emotion regulation (i.e., effectively managing and responding to their emotions). These children may or may not have been formally diagnosed with a disorder such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), or disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD). If your child has one of these disorders or symptoms of any of them (which you'll learn about in chapter 1), this book will help you understand and parent him or her effectively.

    “Nothing predicts the future like the past”

    “Nothing predicts the future like the past”

    Of the past were to predict and create your future.. is that what you’d truly like for you and your family?

    Or, is there something you might want to shift, change, re-create or make different?

    Would you have wanted things different before?

    You can’t change the past.

    Yet, what you do now and forward from this moment IS up to you.

Genuine

Ariel brings the best out of her guests. Her engaging style and deep insight and awareness allows parents to connect to her personal journey as mom while gaining incredible knowledge and skills!

Mama Danielle ,

Strength in Vunerability

I appreciate and applaud Ariel for her willingness to be vunerable in speaking about her role as a Mother. Although each of our journeys are different, there are pieces I believe all of us can relate to in what she reveals to us about how she is growing into and with this important role. More Moms need to hear this podcast so we can understand the strength in our own vunerability and share it with others!

Huntress of Healdsburg ,

Sweet and gentle

I am impressed with Ariel’s podcast on February 13th, because it is caring of the feeling of all of us in the midst of the description of her time with and guidance and loving care of her daughter. All creatures are sentient and need to feel loved. I look forward to the next podcast by Ariel and perhaps with her husband Mats as well. She is a very intuitive and sensitive woman who strives to be inclusive and encouraging to parents and seekers everywhere.
