Lessons from the Playroom

Aug 2, 2022

Join Lisa in exploring a topic that is relevant to every single person on the planet and particularly inspired by a conversation Lisa had with her daughter who is now almost 17 years old. 

In this Lessons from the Playroom episode, you are invited to think about self-esteem in a new or different way so you can support your clients at a deeper level when self-esteem is the thing they are struggling with. Learn more about ….

  • A new reframe on understanding self-worth and how it translates to our work with clients;
  • Why everyone has both low and high self-esteem (and the purpose of it);
  • The correlation between self-worth and nervous system activation;
  • How to support clients who feel they are struggling with low self-esteem/self-worth; and
  • How to support parents/caregivers when they are the ones struggling with feeling not good enough and like an inadequate parent/caregiver. 

Plus, you’ll hear a 17-year-old's amazing definition of what "high self-esteem" can look like and feel like and what "low self-esteem" can look like and feel like- it just might be the best nugget of the entire podcast!
