Birth is often crazy and unpredictable. For some mothers and families, the experience of giving birth ends up varying greatly from what they planned or hoped for. Trauma from birth and postpartum periods can mimic postpartum depression or other postpartum issues, yet the way we resolve these problems are distinct.
Summertime means kids are out of school and the dreaded “Bringing Kids to the Grocery Store Season,” is upon us. Daily tasks can become much more complicated when you have to plan around kids’ schedules, moods, attention-spans, etc.
The Catalyst Center wants to wish every father a wonderful Father's Day! We've compiled a list of some fun local activities to help you celebrate Dad with the whole family!
As a full-time therapist and parent of three children, I know firsthand that it can sometimes feel like a juggling act! Here are some suggestions that may buy you more time to spend with your family...
Our children will only get the best of us if we ensure we have our best to give. If you have ever been on an airplane, you might have heard instructions on what to do if the cabin pressure changes, which requires everyone to wear oxygen masks. Flight attendants instruct parents to put THEIR OWN mask on first prior to assisting children. Why would we choose to help ourselves first in such a situation? Because if we pass out from lack of oxygen before we finish helping our children, who will be available to them in a time of need?
If you are looking for fun and unique ways to spend the your Mothers Day, here are six diverse ideas/events in the Denver metro area.
Would you like to better understand your teenager? Dr. Courtney Klein highlights ways you can reconnect with your ever-changing child to foster deeper relationships, better communication, and improved bonding.
Finding ways to connect with loved ones over long distances is a dilemma faced by many families. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family might not get many opportunities to interact with distant loved ones in person and must rely on other means such as phones or computers. This reality can make it more difficult to connect with younger children who live apart from you, but there are ways to overcome this distance. Read Dr. Katie Godfrey's ideas about how to facilitate long distance connections with children in your family using hand puppets for interactive conversations with younger loved ones.
Bullying continues to be a huge problem in our schools and youth communities. With bullying remaining such a prevalent issue, it makes sense that we should strategize ways to help ourselves and our loved ones navigate these challenging relationships. Dr. Kendra Doukas, LMFT addresses this complex topic and offers useful guidance on how to overcome the difficulties being faced.
Families are complex and need customized attention in order to promote lasting change. Family assessment can be a powerful tool to help foster communication, understanding, and shared goals for improvement.
