Good Kids, Bad Kids.  Parenting Psychologically Healthy Children!
Every parent out there knows that the job of parenting can affect your physical and emotional well being in both a positive and negative way.  The difference between good kids and bad kids is a slippery slope, especially when it comes to shaping the psychology of healthy children. To guide us through this subject, we welcome back Dr. Gregory Canillas to the show! Anyone who has followed this program knows that Dr. Canillas set my show on fire the last time he came through to discuss relationships.  In fact, after 115 shows, that show is still the highest rated and downloaded show I've ever had. Dr. Canillas is currently teaching in a doctoral program in Applied Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (Los Angeles campus) and is an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Pepperdine University and National University.  He is a frequent presenter at regional, national and international conferences on parenting and relationship issues, foster care, domestic trafficking of children, intimate partner violence, substance abuse, psychological treatment and ethnic minority populations and LGBTQ issues.   He has served as a Program Director at several nonprofit organizations, overseeing the child and adult therapy programs and pregnant/parenting teen programs.  Dr. Canillas has also served as a Children's Social Worker with the Department of Children and Family Services, as a Clinical Psychologist with the Department of Mental Health, and later as the Clinical Director of a family preservation program.  He currently serves on the Commission on Youth and Children (Long Beach, California), a body that advises the Mayor and city council on issues of importance to children, adolescents and families in that city.
