We are all called to be children of God in our journey through life. Tonight we talk about the new and reimagined animal world and snake farm with Eric Trager and the end of life journey with our good friends from Hope Hospice here in New Braunfels. Hope Hospice is celebrating the naming of Opal Umpierre as the 2015 Herald Zeitung Unsung Hero and Citizen of the Year Award winner. Join us as we talk about the role faith plays in the mission of Hope Hospice.
When children are victims of a disaster, a school shooting, or perhaps the loss of a classmate or someone close to them, we, as parents, teachers, or mental health professionals need to know how best to assist their grieving process.
As the media reports on school shootings, deaths of children, and tragedy beyond comprehension, one comforting thought is there are trained professionals ready to step in during and after the crisis to help children deal with the loss.
Returning Shattered Lives Radio guest, Dr. David Schonfeld is tops in the field of child bereavement and now heads the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement (NCSCB) which "aims to help prepare professionals working in schools, health care settings, and other community sites to be better prepared to meet children’s needs during and after crisis and loss."
There is so much to talk about when it comes to spirituality. Which ofcourse means that we reached out to expert Dr. Rosie Kuhn for a third time! Luckily for all of us, she agreed to continue our conversation which we started with her multiple shows ago. This time she will help us address questions like:
What is spirituality?
Why is this an important topic for parents, grandparents, and for all of us?
What are some ways to clarify values for ourselves and our children?
How can we be in the world in such a way that children will follow our lead, and cultivate within themselves spiritual values and competencies?
HERE WE DISCUSS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM EVEN THE THINGS THAT WE CAN NOT SEE. HOW IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO BE MINDFUL OF THE PEOPLE YOU HANG AROUND, THE THINGS YOU EXPOSE YOUR FAMILY TOO AND YOUR OWN MENTALITY WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS. THERE ARE ENERGIES ON THE PLANET THAT ARE EVIL AND OPPORTUNISTIC AND DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE YOUNG. IN FACT, MANY EVIL SPIRITS PREFER YOUNG SOULS. WALK WITH ME AS WE TAKE A JOURNEY INTO THE REALM OF UNDERSTANDING OUR ROLE AS PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF OUR CHILDREN,
he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.
Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents
More waves of Indigo, Rainbow, and Crystal children are coming onto the planet, and those who parent need the skills and support to work with these amazing kiddos! They hold different energy signatures that require more from us, and Integrational Coach Denise Dryden is here to share more insights on how you can be the best guide for them.
Denise's work is focused on those who choose to steward young souls into adulthood with meaning and in alignment with their purpose. As a coach, the gift is in bringing the parent into alignment with their child, so their lessons can be learned, their contracts can be honored, and the transference of wisdom can occur between the two souls.
Join us for a great conversation and tips!
