In this podcast, Jennifer discusses the importance of emotional literacy and emotional processing. Feelings are meant to be felt… They are essential in helping us navigate relationships, stay safe, make good choices, and to be at peace in our world. Feelings are information. If we ignore that information – if we don’t listen – feelings don’t go away. They build in intensity and find creative ways to get our attention. One way or another, your brain or your body will make you listen.
In this episode, Jennifer not only talks about why this is so important, but teaches you how to listen and process intense feelings.
Learning to feel your feelings and regulate emotion is the greatest gift you can give yourself and ultimately the greatest gift you can give your child.
