    Couples therapy: becoming parents to the new baby

    in Education

    Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings. Couples can learn how to prepare for life with their new baby and how to be the best parenting team possible by finding new ways to strengthen their relationship, and foster their baby’s development during this challenging time.

    In her English-speaking counseling practice in Milan, Italy, Karen Rigatti helps couples with relationship issues, parenting of a new baby and culture shock and other challenges faced by expats. As a certified professional counselor,she specializes in working with clients on stress management, anxiety, life transitions (marriage, divorce, new parenthood), work-related conflicts, couples therapy, and cross cultural issues. Her office is centrally located in the Bocconi University area, overlooking Parco Ravizza.

    Karen has made Milan her home since 2008. Originally from the US, she specializes in helping other English-speakers improve their quality of life through professional counseling.

    Originally from Arlington, Virginia, Karen graduated with a degree in Psychology from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She transferred to San Francisco and then London, before moving to Milan where she lives with her two daughters who were born here.

    Karen is a member of both the American Counseling Association and AssoCounseling in Italy, holding a Master’s degree in Counseling from the Centro Berne in Milan.

    The best way to connect with Karen is through her website www.KarenRigatti.com or by telephone 349 130 5648

    Guest: Korie Robertson:Strong and Kind and Headlines of the Day

    in Christianity

    It's never been more important to teach your children well. What America needs today are parents who don't just say they value these virtues but who live them and passionately and boldly teach them to their children. It's up to me and you and every parent in America to make the necessary changes to give our children the opportunity to change the world. We do that by instilling good character traits in them so that they will be capable of being the adults our world needs - Korie Robertson. Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality-TV show Duck Dynasty, Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how they've raised such good kids. As they will tell you, 'it isn't always easy, but raising kids with good character is possible.' A straight-forward, practical approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps you identify the character traits you want to see in your children and gives you the tools for putting them in place. Besides strength and kindness other character traits include: Self-Control, Honesty, Compassion, Patience, Joyfulness, Loyalty, Humility. By modeling positive traits, with confidence, consistency, creativity, unity, and in truth and love, you can increase the chances of your kids catching on. At the end of the day, the Duck Dynasty stars say the most important thing you can do for your children is what they do at the end of every episode: hand them over to God in prayer.

    in Self Help

    LUwJC#030 The Hidden Truth Within Cognitive Dissonance

    Do you seem to have a mental war taking place in your mind?
    Do you want to quiet the conflict playing out in your thoughts?
    Are you contributing to the struggle you are experiencing without realizing it?

    Today on Lighten Up with Jen and Cheri we are talking about Cognitive Dissonance; what is it?, how did it take over our mind? and what do we do about it?

    When we become aware of the discomfort that comes from inconsistent thoughts, beliefs and attitudes we often do everything we can do avoid anything that triggers that specific discomfort. We think we are putting an end to our pain. The problem is we are only avoiding the pain! The Dissonance is still within us, waiting to be unleashed again. What can we do about Cognitive Dissonance? What Truth is hiding within the confusion and frustration it brings?

    Join Jen Halterman and Cheri Gillham as they discuss the innocent training we received at a young age that led to our current experiences with Cognitive Dissonance and give you tools to address what it Now!

    We will also be discussing how NOT to pass this on to our children, clients and other people in our lives that we offer advice, coaching and support to!

Even the households have gotten smaller. The youth are out of control and the parents are sitting back and letting them get that way. Join us this Tuesday December 1 @ 9AM EST and chime in.
