Some hits in the conversation:

If you believed you were going to be successful in this treatment program, in recovering from anorexia, you were. If you believed you weren’t, you weren’t
.....
You guys what is that you feel so not able to do?” And you can guess already... – “Handle the emotions that come back !
....
But put that person in the other chair and.. a absolute powerhouse emerges!
.....
why are we framing self-efficacy has a cognitive variable? Why don’t we frame it as an emotion variable?
.....
“What happens when you tell the voice to go away, or not obey it?” Everyone will tell the same: “It screams louder!”
......
we have never found a parent without an inner voice that says: “You know what you did”. So that conversation, as we know in EFT, is always between the self and the self
....
but the real part was .. “process the emotional blocks that keep the parent from engaging in their own natural empathy and natural motivation.”
....
And what we found is .. when parents apologized to their children, they forgave
....
and he says: “The best gift we can give our children is our own happiness!”
....
“If you have a starved anorexic, and a parent whose brain is more or less nourished, which brain would you rather work with?”
....
The parent going to their loved one with emotional self-eficacy has power on two levels
....
He went in and he said to the nurses: “- Don’t touch the babies. You are now teachers. Teach the parents”.
....
when you stop avoiding, when you process emotion, you get healing
...
there are three distinct components: recovery or behavior coaching, emotion coaching and relationship repair
...
And we know that testosterone and shame don’t go very well together. It’s a toxic combination.
...
And it shifts something, because we know the only way to change emotions, is with emotion. Not with lecturing, right?
....
“what is the self saying to the self?” Once I hear that conversation, then we have a conversation.
....
What would they say? They’ll say: “Please help my dad. Please don’t give up on him.”
....
But who is behind the critic, in one way or another? It’s the unfinished business with the parent!
.....
That’s why I am so obsessed with self-efficacy! If it’s a belief, rather than courage.
...
we all think that we know how to validate, but validate again, is simple, but easy not to do!
