Feelings Can Be Fun!!!
Learn to Speak the "Language of the Heart™"
with Amy Donnan, MA, LP, IMH-E®
Infant Mental Health Mentor - Clinical
Amy is a psychologist dedicated to emotional healing, guidance and mastery. Amy is an inventor, songwriter, psychologist, consultant and maker of toys and products that 'make feelings fun.' She also is an advocate for children and supports others who create from the heart. Children call Amy "the worry doctor" because she helps make worries feel better.
I feel grateful to have learned much from the children and adults I meet. Children especially discover the wisdom of their emotions quickly. A little girl once told me other children should "...let the feelings out...if he (she) lets the feelings out he'll (she'll) erase the bad picture in his heart...and have more love."
Letting go of the pain and heartbreak in our lives and opening up to more love frees us to lead lives that feel nourishing, powerful, and full. That's why it's important to help children 'have fun with feelings' early in life, so they can more easily move through challenging experiences, and celebrate connections and happy moments more freely.
Here, Amy says hello and gives a brief description of how to 'take 5' and teach children labeling and problem solving skills.
Here, Amy is interviewed on PBS and children at a preschool 'have fun with feelings.'
