The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and in honor of this, all of the podcasts this month will focus on relationships! This week’s episode focuses on the relationships with our children and parenting. Our special guest therapist for this episode is Mercedes Samudio, LCSW, a parent coach, speaker, and bestselling author of Shame-Proof Parenting. We discussed her ideas about how shame often impacts the way we parent, how we can change the culture around parenting to be more supportive, and strategies for shame-proofing your relationship with your child.
