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.”
I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to sit with Leah Kyaio as she honored me by sharing her own inspirational story of triumph, the amazing work she is doing in the education arena with her Diversity and Inclusion professional development training, including Badass Trainer Bootcamp, along with Educational Services, such as Teach Like Their Lives Depend On It. Thank you, Leah, for all you are doing to shine the light of hope into the lives of teachers, school staff, and especially the children who benefit from your programs.
“Creator and Master of Badass Trainer Bootcamp and Teach Like Their Lives Depend On It, Leah has 25 years of experience empowering those in education, government, law enforcement, and business through training and consulting. She’s committed to providing the very best tools to create change in the teaching of adults and children. All of her work supports resiliency building and increasing professional and individual toolboxes to ensure equity and respect for all.”
What a beautiful, laughter-filled, heart and soul connection I experienced during this interview with Ingrid Helander as we discussed her work as a therapist, group leader, author, teacher, and more. Ingrid shared her insights on worry and anxiety, along with helpful information on healing avenues; her book: Calm Your Worries: Unlock Your Secret Code to Lasting Stress Relief and Self-Confidence; and much more.
Rev. James Encinas joined me on air for a heart-felt conversation to discuss his work with teachers on a trauma-informed and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) healing level, his personal story of triumph, along with a discussion on his books: Wheeling to Healing: Broken Heart on a Bicycle and Your Own Wheeling to Healing: A Guide to Healing Yourself and Groups of People Who’ve Experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and much more.
“A former actor and grade school teacher, now a parent education specialist, teacher trainer and public speaker, James Encinas uses his creative skills in experiential workshops to instruct participants about the impact of trauma on childhood development. The non-judgmental space he creates allows probationers to engage in healing their emotional damage, learn about prevention of future child abuse and domestic violence, and to educate teachers to work with students who live in unsafe environments. James wrote Wheeling to Healing…Broken Heart on a Bicycle: Understanding and Healing from Adverse Childhood Experiences, a book and curriculum. He is a Fellow from the first class of Aspen Institute’s Teacher Leaders, a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network and an activist for healing.”
