45: Bust through the Shame and Live a Happier Life with Dr. Shawn Horn

45: Bust through the Shame and Live a Happier Life with Dr. Shawn Horn

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME! Beneath all of our fear, anxiety, perfectionism, people-pleasing and lack of self-worth lies the same thing – Shame. In today’s episode, Liza is BUSTING through shame with the shame-busting psychologist herself, Dr. Shawn Horn. Dr. Shawn is a psychologist, TEDx speaker, columnist, TV host, host of the Inspired Living podcast, and founder of the Inspired Living School, an online resource supporting your healing journey. Together, they unpack Shame. Dr. Shawn clearly defines shame, reveals the various types of shame, explains how our nervous system responds to shame, and reveals how we can modify our parenting to raise our children with less share and more compassion. This episode is especially helpful for all of us who are raising neurodivergent kids (ADHD, ADD, Learning differences, 2e) as these kiddos may feel a tremendous amount of shame in school. Take notes, this conversation is packed with so much love, insight, tools, and advice you might need to listen to it twice.
