    "Sistahs Coping" A Conversation with Tara Jones

    in Health

    As we continue our conversation on health we take a look at our emotional health. Our Day to day routines  force us to deal with how we handle some of  life’s many challenges, from how we build relationships, to how we recover from setbacks. Like our physical health, our mental and emotional health requires that we take the same amount of care. The loss of a family member can be very unsettling, especially when it is an untimely death. An unexpected death can shatter our world as we know it, and it is often a loss that does not make sense. But how do we cope, what are the steps that we take in order to “make our lives whole again?” Joining me for this conversation is Tara Jones, an author, motivational speaker, whose passion is empowering girls and women. Her current project, a booked entitled, “Sistahs Coping”, focuses on African American girls and women whose fathers have been murdered. The book opens the conversation to the therapeutic resources, as well as the first step to promote public awareness of the lasting emotional, economic, and social effects that are often overlooked amongst African American women due to the abrupt deaths of their fathers.  


    Join us as we discuss the upcoming book, and Tara shares some insight to the project, and the stories of “Sistahs Coping…”

    LIVE! with Cathi---Caregiving-A NOBLE MISSION

    in Fitness

    CAREGIVING A NOBLE MISSION...


    When you think of an adult child caring for an aging parent, you envision a young, robust caregiver in the prime of life.


    America's aging population means caregivers are getting up in years as well.  Circa 2012-stats: 40% of caregivers were 50-64 yeas old, and more than a quarter were 65 or older.


    Whether it's a parent or spouse, caregivers need to balance time and roles.  They need to schedule time for "your time out" not burning out.


    How does caring for a spouse differ from caring for a parent?


    STAY TUNED...


    Caregivers need to speak their mind...etc.


    Caregivers need to take time out...etc.


    Let parent/spouse do things for themselves...etc.


    Don't be an ENABLER...etc.


    When a caregiver seeks for outside help...etc.
