Foremost psychotherapist and educator Roberta Shapiro has skillfully combined hypnosis, guided meditation and cognitive-behavioral techniques, to create mindful understanding, and forgiveness in parents, helping them build constructive communication and coping tools.
If you’re an imperfect parent raising an imperfect child, we say Congratulations! Embrace your imperfection! Because if you think you’re going to be perfect, that makes you imperfect, by definition.
But we all can get better at being the mindful, loving parent we all want to be, and clinical social worker Roberta Shapiro’s brilliant, skillful guided imagery audio exercises offer a set of hypnotic meditations that gently, effortlessly, and incrementally turn frustration, hyper-reactivity and irritability into a calm, cool, mindful stance toward our kids. She lets us become the parent we want to be… not perfect, by any means, but plenty good enough.
Her calming, trustworthy, healing voice has wonderful timbre and texture, and she uses several classic hypnotic and cognitive techniques to support behavior and attitude change. It’s quite impactful in its own incremental way. Set to Steven Mark Kohn’s rich, inspiring meditative music, and engineered by the incomparable audio engineering of Bruce Gigax, you can’t get better than this. Here are the tracks:
- Relaxation Training
- Meditation Introduction
- Gratitude Meditation
- Inner Advisor meditation
- Self-Hypnosis Introduction
