    Solving the ADHD Riddle with Dr Connie McReynolds, Episode #84

    Solving the ADHD Riddle with Dr Connie McReynolds, Episode #84

    Today, we interview Dr. Connie McReynolds, author of the groundbreaking book             "Solving the ADHD Riddle." Beyond traditional methods, Dr. McReynolds advocates for innovative interventions that address the root causes of learning and behavioral challenges rather than just the symptoms. Her work in neurofeedback is a testament to the effectiveness of such alternative approaches. She also illuminates the often-overlooked auditory and visual processing issues underlying learning difficulties. Dr. McReynolds explains how these challenges are not related to the ability to hear or see but to how the brain processes information, which can significantly impact attention and learning. Her approach offers hope and improved quality of life for those affected by ADHD, as evidenced by her research and publications.

    OCD with Natasha Daniels, Episode #81

    OCD with Natasha Daniels, Episode #81

     In this episode, we are going to be speaking with Natasha Daniels, a therapist who specializes in anxiety and OCD and has an incredible online platform to support parents who have children struggling with anxiety disorders. This episode dives into the various forms of OCD, one of the top treatments for OCD "ERP, exposure or response prevention therapy, and how parents can sometimes inadvertently exacerbate their child's OCD symptoms through something called "parental accommodations." Accommodations are common for parents of anxious children to implement to alleviate their child's anxiety. In fact, they increase the intensity of anxiety and the avoidance response.

    Parental Loss & Trauma and How it Impacts our Parenting with Christina Rasmussen, Episode #80

    Parental Loss & Trauma and How it Impacts our Parenting with Christina Rasmussen, Episode #80

    In this touching podcast Christina Rasmussen, author and grief specialist, beautfully reframes how adversity in our childhood creates a form of "grief" that we carry into our parenting experiences. This grief can lead parents to stifling their children's self-expression and ultimately to disconnection from their children and themselves. Christina has a unique way of looking at parental triggers and how to work with them from a place of self-compassion.

    Christina Rasmussen is an acclaimed grief educator and bestselling author of Second Firsts (2013), Where Did You Go? (2018), and Invisible Loss (2024). In 2010, four years after her thirty-five-year-old spouse passed away from Stage 4 colon cancer, she created the Life Reentry process, which launched her on a mission to bring compassion, grace, and validation to thousands while simultaneously establishing an exit from what she termed the Waiting Room.

    To learn more about Christina, visit https://christinarasmussen.com/ or go to https://invisiblelossbook.com/ to purchase her new book "The Invisible Loss"

Boris Sical ,

Love them and their guests

Really amazing podcast. Practical tips on being a better parent.

The only complaint I have just the audio isn’t that great. Really low. So when a notification comes in, it blows up my speakers

But the content is beyond amazing

quaintrellism ,

Hands down the best channel

I came across ICP on Instagram and signed up for their app first. Took a number of courses and was so mindblown by the information shared. The podcast channel is very insightful too and I have benefited so much from both platforms.

Amazing Podcast

I have found some parenting podcasts that I like and can take things from, but nothing quite like this podcast. I LOVE this podcast. I have found so much value in every episode I have listened to so far and actionable processes for helping my children. I am so appreciative! Can't wait to listen to some more episodes!
