Ep. 40 – The Change Triangle with Hilary Jacobs Hendel

Emotions! You can't live with'em, but ya can't get rid of'em. Am I right?!

Nah, I'm just kidding, of course. Emotions are one of the most important things in our lives. Emotions make us who we are. And they have a big role in our development and everyday lives.

But emotions can also be hard on us. The so-called “negative” emotions such as sadness, anger, or fear can wreak havoc in our days and nights, making our lives miserable. And if you're parents, who have to take care not only of your emotions but those of your kids as well.

Well, what if there was a tool that could really help you make sense of your emotions and cope with them when they get a little bit too much?

In this episode of The Apparently Parent Podcast, I want to tell you about such a tool. It's called The Change Triangle and it was developed by Hilary Jacobs Hendel, LCSW, who is a guest in this episode. In the episode, Hilary and I talk about the change triangle and how it can play a role in your lives as parents (and also as just human beings with emotions, kids or no kids).
