Let's Talk About Transitions with the ETC Team

Let's Talk About Transitions with the ETC Team

Picture this: you're enjoying a beautiful day in your neighborhood park. Kids are running around having fun, adults are getting a rare moment to talk to each other - it's euphoric...and then it's time to leave. Cue the meltdown.   We all face them in life, so let's just talk about them - transitions. They might be daily, seasonal or major life transitions, but they're all capable of tripping us up in the right conditions. That goes for us - AND our children. We pulled ETC Staffers Becca McKay and Jesse Faris in to explain why transitions can be SO hard for some of us and our kids and to give us some practical, everyday advice for how to handle them a little smoother.   Check it out and let us know what you think!   #parentingpodcast #traumainformedparenting #parentingadvice #empoweredtoconnectpodcast #ETCPodcast #mentalhealth #gratitude #selfcare #inspiration #ETC #connectedparenting #empoweredtoconnect #attachmentbasedparenting #parenting #parentingtips #TBRI #family ...

Dr. Jim Henry is one of the most fascinating people you will ever meet. He is a Professor at Western Michigan University and the Program Director of the Children's Trauma Assessment Center. For over 20 years, Dr. Henry has been sitting with and hearing the stories of precious children from across the country who have survived unimaginable things.  How, then, can Dr. Henry still be doing this work?? We asked Dr. Henry to be with us today to give some insight into what has allowed him to continue to be completely present with children and how he protects himself from burnout.
