Dr. Mona Delahooke has more than 30 years of experience as a clinical psychologist caring for children and their families. Now, in her latest book, Brain-Body Parenting, she shares her radical new approach to parenting based on her clinical experience as well as the most cutting edge research in neuroscience and child psychology.

In this episode, she talks to Liz about what it means that parents share a nervous system with their child and unpacks the idea of “co-regulation.” She also explains why the concept of “the body budget,” is one of the most important neuroscience discoveries – and why science reinforces the idea of restoring “the village” to mother’s lives.
