34: Dr. Jennifer Freed: On Bullying and Grieving Orlando

34: Dr. Jennifer Freed: On Bullying and Grieving Orlando



Today I am talking with Dr. Jennifer Freed, a child psychologist and the co-founder of AHA! (Attitude.Harmony.Achievement.), a youth-focused non-profit that works to end bullying, improve self-esteem, and empower teens through emotional learning and creative expression.

AHA! was founded in response to the Columbine tragedy and here I am recording this interview 2 days after the Orlando massacre.  I think you’ll agree the work of Jennifer and her organization has never been more imperative.

When I scheduled this interview it was intended to be about bullying – which Jennifer and I discuss in depth.  But, we also talk through some things you can do to work through the Orlando tragedy.  This is a deeply sad time for many people and I wanted to use Jennifer as a resource for those of you who may be struggling in processing the Orlando event.

In this episode, Jennifer shares:

  • How to take care of yourself and your emotions after a time of crisis (like the Orlando tragedy)

  • How to introduce young kids to different emotions

  • What 3 things to do when your child/teen is experiencing challenging or overwhelming emotions

  • What do to and what NOT to do if your child is being bullied

  • What steps to take if your child is exhibiting bullying behavior

  • Why it’s inappropriate to label a child a “bully”
