“Katherine Hughes, JD, MSW, LICSW is a clinical social worker and attorney with over 20 years of experience working in juvenile court mental health clinics with youth and their families. She has also practiced law as a legal services attorney, representing women leaving violent relationships. She is passionate about connecting parents and caregivers with information and resources about childhood trauma so that traumatized children, and their families, receive the help and support that they need to heal, grow and thrive.

Katherine gathered volunteers from the Boston University School of Public Health, the Boston University School of Social Work, the Child Trauma Training Center at UMass Medical School, the Parent/Professional Advocacy League, and two parent focus groups, to create the pamphlet, “Understanding Childhood Trauma and Your Family.” It was recently redesigned and translated into eight languages by the Family Resource Centers of Massachusetts and can be found at their website: https://www.frcma.org/about/trauma-and-resilience-resources-and-training“
I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to sit down with Alison Morris of Full Potential Parenting to discuss her work with parents where she offers support solutions for challenging behaviors in children, along with her philosophies on adverse childhood experiences, trauma, Emotional Freedom Technique, and more. Join us for a brief EFT session at the end of the interview!
“Alison Morris is a certified, accredited “trauma mama!” As the single adoptive mom of a child with attachment and developmental trauma challenges, Alison started looking for answers, and one of the answers she found was Emotional Freedom Techniques, otherwise known as EFT or Tapping. Alison created Full Potential Parenting to help other parents of children with emotional and behavioral challenges understand what’s really going on with their children and what’s going on for them. Through the Full Potential Parenting Summit and the Full Potential Parenting Show, she interviews providers, doctors, therapists, and parents about non-pharmaceutical approaches to healing, and she offers individual coaching and group tapping classes so parents can make friends with their own emotions, and thereby provide a safe and compassionate space for their children to express their big feelings.”
Teri is so excited to welcome the brilliant and beautiful Paulette Tomasson via a Skype interview. Paulette discusses her vast therapy modalities from experiential to equine therapy and so much more. We discuss trauma, resilience/drive to survive, the blossoming of self-reflective men overcoming their sex addictions, internet pornography, critical need for parental controls on all devices, and embracing/celebrating our “note in the symphony”!
This week, Teri is excited to have her beautiful friend, Michelle, joining her to discuss “parenting a child with anxiety”. Please tune in as Michelle shares her insights and wisdom on this important topic.
