EP49-Improving Mental and Emotional Health As A Family Unit
Today we are talking mental and emotional health, particularly managing emotions within the household as a family unity.  Some of us grew up in households where emotions ran very high.  We were not taught how to regulate our emotions, nor how to remedy and recover from incidents that involved emotional outbursts.  As parents now, our wish is to raise emotionally intelligent children.   How will you teach your child the skills for emotional literacy, self-awareness, social awareness, emotional regulation and agility? For those of you who have acquired these skills, you’ve probably done so through your own healing and personal development work.  Our guest today, Jennifer Hazan, has created a learn at home program called Cam and Leo’s Emotion School, that you can do with your children to help your family build these skills and transform the way you interact with each other and with the world.  Listen to learn more!  Be sure to listen for:        What exactly is Cam and Leo’s Emotion School and how the self-led program works for your family Why Jenny felt the need to create program How the program benefits the mental and emotional health of each family member         The long term impact of the program on future generations The scientific basis from which the program was created and the team that helped Jenny bring the program to life Examples of why the Will Smith incident at the 2022 Oscars makes this program more relevant How to become part of the beta testing for the program About Our Guest: Jennifer Hazan is Founder & CEO of Cam & Leo's Emotion School, a unique experiential educational tool, rooted in the core principles of psychoanalytic and behavioural therapies, that tackles the mental health of the household unit. Household members gain awareness and control over the murky interior world of their emotions to unlock success, fulfilment, and joy in all areas of life: academic, professional, social, and interpersonal. This unique approach not only transforms the household; its impact is intergenerational, as emotionally equipped children grow to become emotionally equipped adults and parents. Participants build emotional literacy, self-awareness, social awareness, emotional regulation, emotional intelligence, and emotional agility and transform the way they interact with each other and with the world. Best of all... they have fun doing it! This program was created in collaboration with Jenny who wrote the program and Dr. Avi Gordon, a clinical psychologist based in Florida and curriculum specialist Talia Osiel in Toronto.  Beta testing is being run through a research project being facilitated by Dr. Lauren Saling at RMIT University in Australia.

Being raised by immigrant parents is never easy.  In this episode, we have a conversation with Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Nashina Merani, on how she shattered cultural expectations and disrupted societal norms 20 years ago.  Her life journey has not followed the chronological, cultural norms of what it means to be a “good brown girl,” resulting in a decades-long battle against shame, anxiety and feeling “not good enough.”  We discuss how to prevent these cultural expectations from being placed on our children today, while keeping them rooted in who they are.   Be sure to listen for: The outdated cultural views of what it means to have a mental health disorder and the need for that to change How inauthentic roles and beliefs about ourselves form in childhood The reaction of her family and the society when she experienced an unplanned pregnancy at a young age How to break free from shame and the expectations that others place upon us What it means to be compassionate and accepting as parents today Nashina’s advice on how to stop living for society About Our Guest: As a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor & Workshop Facilitator, Nashina offers an integrative approach to therapy, helping to identify patterns, narratives and behaviours that may stem from any number of causes.
