EP25_You Can Break The Cycle - Navigating a Healthy Food/Body Relationship For You And Your Child With Dr Christina Stai, Psy. D. (Expert)
If you have ever struggled with poor body image, low self-esteem, disordered eating behaviors, or feelings of being powerless and out of control, there is a strong possibility that you may unknowingly pass these same struggles on to your children.
In today’s episode I chat to Dr Christina Stai, Psy. D. about how to navigate yourself and your child through every stage of childhood development – starting with pregnancy, so that this doesn’t happen.
Dr Stai is a licensed clinical psychologist and the owner of Holistic Resources LLC in SE Iowa, where she provides therapy and neuropsychological assessments for children, teens, & young adults. Dr. Stai enjoys working in areas of neurodivergence (ADHD, Autism, etc.), trauma and abuse, foster care & adoption, disordered eating, developmental delays, and behavioural and emotional concerns.
We chat about and celebrate the 1 year anniversary of her book called “Don’t Pass it On – You Can Break the Cycle” which is designed to empower and equip all you mamas and soon-to-be mamas to break that cycle.
Don't Pass It On will help you identify, understand, and navigate your past and present challenges with confidence. It will give you practical tools to better ensure that you don't accidentally perpetuate these same thought patterns in your children.
We also explore potential things to look out for when it comes to telling the difference between potentially disordered eating, neurodivergence, or simply “normal kid” stuff when it comes to food and eating in children.
