In this episode, I have the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Mona Delahooke to talk about her new book, Brain-Body Parenting. We also speak about the connection between our brain and bodies, why our nervous systems get overloaded, and how our kids process their emotions.
Dr. Mona is a mother of three, and a licensed clinical psychologist with more than thirty years of experience caring for children and their families. She is a senior faculty member of the Profectum Foundation and a member of the American Psychological Association.
