Living Joyful Courage MEMBERSHIP
Community and Coaching for moms raising adolescents

 

You know how I am so passionate about supporting parents in our journey through the teens years…  You have seen me really niche down and offer resources and coaching for this super special parenting season.

 

And YOU know that I believe that community is EVERYTHING, right?

 

Well, I am creating the MOST amazing community space for moms navigating the tween and teen years -- the Living Joyful Courage Membership.

 

The terrain gets ROUGH when we move into the adolescent years with our kids…  Even the most committed “positive parenting” mom may be finding herself out of her depth when the challenges start to show up. 

 

It’s messy.

 

And moms need a place and a community that can be the soft landing for her to roll around in the messiness. A place that celebrates the challenges as opportunities for personal growth and discovery. A place that puts relationship first - relationship with self, with our kids, with the world around us.

 

I am really just teasing you with this right now. Doors will open for this magical space mid April…  If you are interested in being on the wait list to find out more go to www.joyfulcourage.com/ljc.

My guest today is Jud Brewer.

Dr. Jud is a thought leader in the field of habit change and the “science of self-mastery”, having combined over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training with his scientific research therein. 

He is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center and associate professor in Behavioral and Social Sciences and Psychiatry at the Schools of Public Health & Medicine at Brown University. He is also the executive medical director of behavioral health at Sharecare Inc. and a research affiliate at MIT.

A psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training for addictions, Brewer has developed and tested novel mindfulness programs for habit change, including both in-person and app-based treatments for smoking, emotional eating, and anxiety.

Takeaways from the show:

  • Jud’s journey with anxiety
  • Number needed to treat
  • Where anxiety comes from
  • Why anxiety has increased in the past year
  • Tools to help parents stay calm
  • The benefits of mapping habit loops
  • How our brains are wired for reward value
  • The power of fear and worry in parents
  • Becoming disenchanted by your behaviors
  • Bigger better offer
  • The reward value of worrying vs. being curious
  • Mindfulness of emotions
  • Cause and effect relationship

Where to find Dr. Jud:

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

This phrase comes to mind, I think it’s a quote from James Stevens, “curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.” So to me joyful courage means that when we can bring curiosity with us everywhere, we have the courage to face anything that we need to face.

See you next week!! :)

Parenting for the Season You’re In - MIDDLE SCHOOL AND BEYOND

I am super excited to announce that there is a BRAND NEW LIVE CLASS happening for parents of Middle Schoolers and BEYOND in March!

 

Each week will be a live session with me, where I will deliver content and facilitate learning, followed by time for parent hot seats - time for parents to share their real and relevant challenges and get laser sharp coaching from me!  AND, each week participants will get a downloadable guide as well as a companion audio meditation to use to stay connected to what they are working to integrate into their relationships with their adolescent.

 

Some of what we will cover includes:

 

 

  • Being with the roller coaster of the teen years
  • Recognize where we are adding to our kids discouragement, and how to step back into relationship
  • Communication tools that build resilience and connection
  • How kindness and firmness looks the same, and different as our kids get older
  • Being the parent you want to be

 

 

School, screens, peers, attitude - all of what you learn during the Seasons course will support you showing up to the challenges of THIS season in a way that aligns with your values.

 

Here’s what parents said about the Seasons course: 

 

“In these uncertain times I needed the grounding I get from Positive Discipline. Casey does a brilliant job of teaching the core concepts and guiding you through the challenges of putting them into practice. This program is for everyone. If you are familiar with Positive Discipline it’s a fantastic refresher. If you are new to Positive Discipline this will be a game-changer for your family. Your time and money will be very well spent. ”

— Mama Sarah

 

“I loved learning what draws us closer to our children and what pushes our children away. I know this stuff, however it was good to have it in a list that so clearly gave me visuals for how those actions show up in my life.”

— Mama Kimberly

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

When I hear Joyful Courage I think it has to do with being brave without worrying about the outcome, just for the moment of the bravery. Like the joy of taking the leap or asking someone out without worrying how it turns out.

See you next week!! :)
