Throwback Episode: When Self Care Doesn't Cut It with Carissa Woodwyk

Throwback Episode: When Self Care Doesn't Cut It with Carissa Woodwyk

As we finish moving into our new space, we wanted to hit you with one more throwback episode. We'll be jumping back in with a brand new episode which will air NEXT WEEK! We felt it appropriate to bring back our good friend Carissa Woodwyk talking about what to do when 'self care' doesn't cut it... Self care is a hot topic these days - in fact, it's been a topic of conversation on our show several times. What happens, though, when your self care doesn't cut it? When you still find yourself empty and searching for what you need to care for your people well? Marriage and Family Therapist and longtime friend of ETC Carissa Woodwyk joins us to talk about how we have to move beyond self care to self compassion to be whole.  To learn more about Carissa's work and thoughts, follow her on Instagram @weneedoneanother or like her on Facebook !

Throwback Episode: There is No Such Thing as Self Regulation with Robyn Gobbel

Throwback Episode: There is No Such Thing as Self Regulation with Robyn Gobbel

Today we bring you a throwback episode! Our whole ETC team is in the process of packing up to move into an amazing new space (that we can't wait to show you) here in Memphis, Tennessee, so we thought it'd be helpful to re-share one of our favorite episodes in case you missed it. One of our favorite humans, Robyn Gobbel, joined us a few months back to talk about a blog post she wrote entitled "Self Regulation Doesn't Exist" (you should definitely read it)! Robyn Gobbel is a therapist, speaker, podcast host, webinar creator and more and she joins us today to do a deep dive into the topic of self regulation and what is actually happening in the brain when we are distressed and then brought back in to regulation. You'll also hear Robyn call this phrase by a different name that helps bring clarity to what is actually happening when we help our kids (or our grownups) learn to regulate. To learn more about Robyn's work and to check out her podcast as well as the amazing collection of resources she's compiled, visit her website here and don't miss out on signing up for Parenting after Trauma: Minding the Heart and Brain. Registration opens on the 16th for this powerful online, self-paced course www.robyngobbel.com/parentcourse To learn more about Empowered to Connect, visit us on our website, find us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram or check out all of our podcast episodes and video resources on YouTube!
