I have found my professional twin! A fellow psychologist who loves kids, loves parents, loves helping, and loves sharing small ways that can make a big difference with parents and kids. This conversation with Krysten Taprell, aka The Therapist Parent, was so exciting because it brings real-life therapy skills into the living room. Listen in as she shares her advice for sleep, dreams, and mindfulness with kids - that frankly....also applies perfectly to adults! Thank you for listening to this episode of #thingsyoulearnintherapy.
As with one of the other episodes on grief, I am cross-listing this episode on my other podcast Kids These Days need us to make words matter for good because I know the content is powerful for both audiences.
Here is a bit about Kristen. Be sure to check out her social media pages - they are FILLED with great images for parents!!
I am a Psychologist with over 20 years experience working with children and families. I have worked in many settings including schools, Private Practice and Government agencies. I have extensive experience working with people on the Autistic Spectrum as well as conducting diagnostic assessments. In this time I found that I was seeing the same issues coming through my door, requiring the same strategies. While some difficulties will need regular sessions with a qualified Psychologist, sometimes parents just need a few tips and creative ideas to bring change to their children's lives. I hope to offer you proven strategies and playful activities that children respond to.
