168: Building Wholehearted Families, with RLP Certified Facilitator™ Susan Killeen Jones

Uncategorized Mar 09, 2022

How can parents, caregivers, and coaches build resilience in kids from hard places? In this podcast episode, Terri and I are joined by RLP Certified Facilitator™ and Licensed Professional Counselor Susan Killeen Jones.

Susan is an attachment-focused therapist who has recently made the shift into coaching families and kids.

In this episode, we have a conversation about:

  • How exploring a child’s story can help them navigate grief and loss
  • Why building resilience and a sense of belonging in kids is so important
  • Practical examples of how parents and caregivers can be present with kids
  • The power of giving kids language to name what they uniquely need
  • What it looks like for parents to do their own internal work in order to help their kids

We also talk about why Susan made the shift from counseling to coaching, and her passion for developing mental health from an early age.

This episode is full of great information for parents, caregivers, and anyone who encounters kids from hard places.
