In this episode, we’re turning the tables back toward Lisa’s direction to discuss what it takes to make hard decisions (both personal and professional), the courage it takes to make the hard decisions, and the reasons we don’t make hard decisions. And joining Lisa for this discussion is the perfect person to have the conversation – Robert Abel, Jr., Operations Director for the Synergetic Play Therapy Institute. 

Join us for a deep dive into the world of decision-making, touching on:

  • Understanding the neurobiology and relational aspects that make decision-making challenging. 
  • Cultivating the courage to authentically express ourselves and face difficult choices head-on.
  • Unveiling some of the tough decisions therapists encounter in their clinical practice.
  • Exploring what happens when we don’t make the hard decisions (… hint: it has something to do with the mind and body).
  • Navigating the decision-making process as therapists concerning the well-being of children, such as mandatory reporting.
  • Supporting a child in making hard decisions including discovering who they actually are versus who they think they should be (… perhaps our most important work).

You’ll also hear some of the hard decisions Lisa has had to make in her life (personally and professionally), how these decisions have been instrumental on her life journey, and why her favorite quote is “I’d rather have the whole world against me than me against my own soul” (source: Dr. John Demartini).

Tune in to this captivating episode and unravel the significance of embracing hard decisions. Gain insights into the profound impact they can have, allowing us to authentically express ourselves and allow ourselves to be fully loved for who we are.
