Jonice WebbThis week our guest is Jonice Webb PhD. She is a renowned psychologist and pioneer in the field of childhood emotional neglect and its negative impact on adult behavior. A licensed psychologist since 1991, she has a private practice in Lexington, MA, specializing in the treatment of couples and families. Over the course of her career, Dr. Webb has worked in a variety of settings, including a psychiatric emergency service, substance abuse programs, and outpatient clinics. Over two decades of practicing psychology, Dr. Webb gradually started to see a factor from childhood which weighs upon people as adults.  This factor is extremely subtle.  In fact, it’s so difficult to see that it goes virtually unnoticed while it quietly saps a person’s joy in life, causing him or her to struggle with self-discipline, or to feel disconnected and unfulfilled.  Dr. Webb gave a name to this invisible factor from childhood.  She calls it Emotional Neglect.™” “Running on Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect” reveals the subtle power of this phenomenon.

Some of the topics we will cover with Dr. Webb on Wednesday are:

– The definition of Emotional Neglect

– Why it’s been so overlooked

– Is this a new concept?

– How is EN different from childhood abuse?

– The insidious pass-down of Emotional Neglect throughout generations

– How to stop the cycle, and not pass EN down to your own children

– How EN can play into suicidal feelings

– Should parents feel guilty if they see themselves in this book?

So tune in this Wednesday at 1Pm and find out how to recognize and deal with emotional neglect.
