Shona Innes is a clinical and forensic psychologist with over 25 years of helping children and grown-ups and consulting to carers, welfare staff and government bodies. Shona speaks on ABC Sunshine Coast every Thursday morning about child and teen mental health. She is also author of the internationally published Big Hug book series designed to help young people through difficult times or tricky situations.

This Thursday on ABC Sunshine Coast mornings the topic will be narcissism or extreme self absorption. When is self absorption “normal” and when is it an issue that needs intervention or treatment?  Do “kids these days” still care?  How do you promote caring in kids?
Please tune in at around 9:40 EST or call in for a chat on 1300 903 222.

This Thursday, around 9.40am EST, on ABC Sunshine Coast Mornings I will be chatting about child discipline.

How do you respond when your child does something they are not supposed to do?
Is it ever appropriate to smack?  What do you remember about they way you were disciplined as a child?
How stressed do you get when your child misbehaves?

The way we discipline children has a big impact on their social and moral development as well as their mental health.

Tune in to hear which discipline methods are the ones associated with the best outcomes for kids, and grown ups. Better still, join us for a chat on 1300 903 222.
