S2/ E18: Dr. Emma Svanberg, Clinical Psychologist & Author of “Parenting For Humans”

April 19, 2023

Ashley Verma shares a Bizzimumzi chat with Clinical Psychologist & Author of “Parenting for Humans”, Dr. Emma Svanberg aka Mumologist.

Dr. Svanberg is experienced in a range of psychological therapies that work integratedly, with a focus on attachment and psychodynamic approaches. She also draws from Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, systemic and narrative approaches and other theories. Alongside my direct clinical work, I use community psychology ideas to offer information, support and empowerment through writing, online communities, social media and activism. Emma believes that many mental health problems could be prevented or their impact minimised with better support from those around us – from our communities to our governments.

During this Bizzimumzi chat Ashley and Emma discuss:

  • Dr. Svanbergs journey to becoming a Clinical Psychologist
  • Her mentors
  • What led her to specialise in early years birth trauma
  • How to achieve being “good enough” in the parenting space
  • Approaching parenting with low pressure
  • Copping with trigger words from your child
  • The development of her new book “Parenting for Humans”
  • Expectations of what is next
  • Passing the torch with words of wisdom to a fellow Bizzimumzi
