I’m sure many of you know my guest by way of her popular podcast produced by Dear Media called Raising Good Humans. On her show, Dr. Aliza Pressman interviews parenting experts covering a gamut of topics from free range parenting to coping mechanisms for anxiety for kids of all ages. I am a supporter of Dear Media and a huge fan of her show.
To give your more context into her experience and expertise,
Dr. Aliza Waksal Pressman, Ph.D. received her undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, her MA in Risk, Resilience and Prevention from the Department of Human Development at Teacher’s College and earned her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences with a fellowship at the National Center for Children and Families.
Dr. Pressman is a certified in parent management training from the Yale Parenting Center and an assistant clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the Department of Pediatrics. Aliza is the co-founding director of the non profit Mount Sinai Parenting Center.
She is the Co-Founder of seedlingsgroup. It’s a company that provides in-person sessions in New York and Los Angeles and via Skype for anyone living in between. During their private sessions, Dr. Aliza and her team of professionals address anything specific a parent is struggling with and educate them on what normal developmental changes to expect and the best ways to respond. Popular subjects include sleep solutions, picky eating, toilet training, sibling preparation, twin challenges, behavioral issues, proper discipline, limit setting and more.
Their visits use specific research-based information to help parents make the best decisions for their family during every major developmental period – from birth through school age. Their advice is tailored to your child’s stage and your parenting style. Rather than focusing on your child’s abilities, seedlingsgroup focuses on the caregiver’s behaviors that will help scaffold your child’s optimal development. She has two girls Penelope and Vivian, 13 and 10 respectively.
