Feed The Need
April 14, 2021
Hosted by Síle Uí Chiaráin
Positive social interactions and healthy exchanges of attention are basic human needs, analogous to other basic needs like food consumption or sleep. It is fair therefore to assume, that the absence of positive social interaction, at whatever age, may create a want, or ‘craving’, that motivates behaviour to repair what is lacking. Cues associated with positive social interaction, for example smiling faces, playtime, credible conversation, activate neural reward systems. In this episode Anne Dobson, an experienced teacher and behaviour management therapist and coach, from New South Wales in Australia, introduces us to her evidence based effective behaviour management programmes, which support parents, carers and educators in understanding children’s behaviour to this end. Effective Behaviour Management is all about communication. We often have unspoken or unwritten expectations about behaviour that we don’t always communicate clearly. Clear communication, ongoing support and regular feedback make all the difference when it comes to finding effective solutions for managing behaviours of concern. In this interview Anne Dobson articulately and eloquently explains how we can Feed that Need for attention in our children, even from the prospective of a busy parent or within a busy classroom. Anne’s Covid-inspired courses aswell as her well-established Great Expectations and other courses are supported by online webinars and post-attendance groups and meetings. Anne’s courses help parents, carers and educators to engage with the children in their care with a greater sense of certainty and confidence. Support through understanding!
Whole and One
Wednesday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
At the intersection of epi-genetics, neuro plasticity and psycho-neuro immunology is our ever increasing awareness of neuro-chemistry and the mind-body connect. You are what you think about. Where attention goes, energy flows. In other words, as your body keeps score, the servant can become the master. Your thoughts can knock you out of homeostasis and make you sick. Conversely when you learn how to get your emotional needs met, healthily and in balance, you cannot be mentally, emotionally and/or by extension, physically unwell. Through this empowering series of light-bearing interviews with captivating guests, Síle Ui Chiaráin from Ireland will help you to gain objective perspective on your own story. Stay tuned to learn how to manage your self-talk, quiet your inner critic, as well as build a healthy relationship with anxiety. It’s like doing a bicep curl for your brain. Tune in Wednesdays at Noon Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment and build resilience one show at a time.

Having recently retired from her post as a primary school teacher in Ireland, in a career that spanned thirty years, Síle continues to educate, inspire and mentor in her new incarnation as a life and business coach, psychotherapist and growth strategist. Síle works with formulas to help clients achieve mind-derived health optimisation. Teaching individuals and business communities about Causing an Effect as opposed to Cause and Effect, Síle is taking blueprints for best practice, from philosophy, to initiation to mastery, one recovery programme at a time. Culture is key, when it comes to growth and expansion. Síle’s WHOLE and ONE master plan frames the 3As of adaptability, authenticity and autonomy as non-negotiable in the architecture of adaptable change-mentality, at individual and organisational levels, for optimum results.
Thoughts are the locomotive to living intentionally, as opposed to living out of habit. You choose your thoughts. Síle expounds the value of meta-cognition as a launch pad for achieving desired outcomes. When you learn how to think about what you’ve been thinking about, you are no longer the programme, you are the observer of the programme, and from here you can change practices to change outcomes. Knowledge, particularly psycho-education as well as practices such as mindfulness, gratitude and self-care are the tools of the trade if you wish to live deliberately and optimise results.
