    Discussion: How can mom heal after divorce?

    Sherry works with women who are thinking about or are going through recovery from divorce. Many of her clients are women who are thinking about whether they want to stay in the marriage or not. She has created a model to determine if the marriage is salvageable and  supports them in their process, whether they choose to stay in the marriage or if they decide to leave, helping them to minimize the trauma to the family system. She helps women figure out who they are again, get their identity back, and fix their "picker" so the next time around they get into a relationship that sticks!

    1) Sherry shares with us what happens if women do not honor their grieving process and how it repeats patterns in the next marriage.

    2) We discussed how important it is to distinguish if you are grieving the loss of the spouse or the loss of the family unit. Many times women are often surprised on what they discover.

    3) Ways you can support yourself and your kids in the grieving process:

    4) It is important to take part in healthy coping mechanisms, kids pick up on them. Sherry shares how to sit with your own negative emotions.

    5) Tara share what she feels is her finest parenting moment..."The Kitten Story".

    6) Sherry shares how to carve a positive experience in this recovery process.

    7) We learn in depth about the difference between the "leaning in partner" and the "leaning out partner". How it is important to know which one you may be in terms of the ending of the relationship and grieving process.

    8) Anna shares her experience of going through her parent's divorce.

    S4: E4 - Guest Expert, Justina Hinterberger, LCMHC, What is Postpartum Depression? Diagnosis, Symptoms, and Treatment

    Cast:
    Dr. Tara Egan, host
    Justina Hinterberger, LCMHC - guest expert

    Today’s episode is for the moms out there. Tara welcomes her guest, Justina Hinterberger. Justina is a Board Certified (NCC) counselor that specializes in women and trauma located in Cornelius, NC . She offers treatment for complex issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, perinatal mental health, grief and loss, infertility and personality disorders. Our topic is " What is Postpartum Depression?  Diagnosis, Symptoms, and Treatment."
    I’d like to highlight something that I found to be particularly relatable on her website. She writes, “as women, we often take on many roles; professional, friends, sisters, daughters, mothers, grandmothers. We so often are forced by others in our lives and by society to lose ourselves in our roles, especially after becoming mothers. Justina seeks to walk alongside women as they rediscover who they are without the pressure or stigmas of who they "should" be. Not every women has to have children, not every woman has to get married, not every woman has to live a life pleasing someone else. Women are unique individual human beings with different experiences, needs, thoughts, desires and goals.”
    Tune in to learn:

    - Many mom's do not report that they are feeling post partum depression.
    - What is post partum depression? What are the symptoms?
    - How is it diagnosed?

    - Why do we call it PPD when it often looks like anxiety? 
    - Can we predict who is more likely to demonstrate symptoms? (Family history, environmental factors, past history of mental illness)
    - How does it impact romantic relationships, connecting with the baby, self-esteem, confidence as a mother? 
    -How can husbands/partners support a mother with PPD? Can dads get PPD?
    - What is the first step you should take if you think you may be experiencing PPD? What can you do if you feel like a friend or family member is experiencing it?

    S4: E3-Bullies and Being Bullied, What Parents Need to Know

    Cast:
    Dr. Tara Egan, host
    Anna, teen co-host

    Anna is back again with Tara to discuss a very important topic, bullying. The title of this episode is, "Bullies and Being Bullied, What Parent Need to Know."

    This topic is such an important one, and in doing their research they realized there is traditional bullying (in person) and there is cyber bullying (online). They found there is so much information on each type, that it can be overwhelming. They decided to break the two types into their own episodes, this is first one.

    They jump in by defining bullying to clarify what they are talking about because there can be some confusion. Bullying is unwanted aggressive behavior amongst children (can happen between adults too) involving  real or perceived power of balance and where the behavior  is repeated or has the potential to be repeated over time.

    Listen in to learn:

    - Why kids bully.

    - How quickly the balance of power can change and how it  happens more often than you think.

    - The various types of bullying (verbal, social, physical, cyber), along with examples of where and how it can happen.

    - That bullying is typically under reported and why kids refrain from reporting it.
     
    - Why it is so important  not to label kids as bullies OR victims.

    - Roles that kids  play in bullying situations.
          - How one person can reinforce or change the trajectory of the bullying incidence.

    - Signs to look out for in your kids that they may be being bullied or your kid is bullying other kids.

    -How a parent’s job (or lack of, such as with a stay-at-home-parent) or work schedule may impact parenting time.
     -What a “Child Custody Evaluation” is?  When is this warranted?

So real, so relatable

Love this concept of including an actual teen! It doesn't get any more real than that. Dr. Egan exemplifies the sound concepts she shares, proving it really works. Her books are amazing as well!
