    New Parenting Wisdom from the Ancients-Dean Chavooshian, Author

    in Parents

    We can learn much from the wisdom of great ancient thinkers when we are looking for the most important basic principles to teach struggling teens explained Dean Chavooshian, author of The Pursuit of Wisdom, to Lon Woodbury April 27, 2016.  One example is the courage of Galileo, the early 17th century astronomer, who had the courage to challenge the all-powerful Christian Church in questioning Church teachings.  He is an example of the courage all parents and healing programs can use to teach young people the value of having the courage to express who they are or to confront their fears.

    Beyond Codependency

    in Parents

    Do you know the actual definition of codependent? No? That’s okay, because no one does. It’s a term that was created by treatment professionals in the 80’s. In the early 80’s when treatment centers became overrun with people abusing and addicted to alcohol and drugs, clinicians attempted to lump them all together and find one label to cover the myriad of phases of addiction their clients were showing up in (read: diagnoses were becoming more and more difficult to make, and were often wrong). This led to a change in the terminology from “alcoholism” and “addicted” to “chemical dependency”. On tonight's podcast we'll discuss where the term "codependent" came from, and whether or not it actually applies to you.
