No doubt about it, Barbara Kaynan is a fascinating human! A Registered Drama Therapist with the North American Drama Therapy Association and mom to two littles, Barbara holds a Master’s degree from NYU in Drama Therapy and a certificate from KINT Institute in The Arts and trauma treatment.

She specializes in trauma-informed person-centered care; guiding individuals and groups, across treatment settings and cultural organizations, during times of big life transitions. Barbara has experience leading therapeutic theatre processes for Holocaust survivors, she has provided expressive, clinical support for at-risk youth, hospitalized children recovering from medical procedures and their families, individuals living with chronic and persistent mental illness, adults in acute psychosis, and older adults living with skilled nursing and memory care needs.

Barbara is a published research scholar, peer review editor, and former professor at Long Island University.

She believes that your relationship with yourself and others is an art – one that can be rehearsed and rewoven into experiences for healthier living. Are you ready to take up space, honor your experience, and create the life you want to live? This episode is for you!

  • What drama therapy can look like
  • Getting stuck in one role in our lives and the importance of getting in touch with other life roles

  • Dismantling the guilt and pressure around societal expectation of being the “best mom”
  • The need for mothers to get in touch with their innate power and begin looking inward for answers to their parenting questions
  • Barbara’s suggestions and tips for “rewilding” – how to open yourself back up to yourself
  • How you can use components of drama therapy in parenting your own children
  • How to approach adolescence and maintain that close relationship as a parent

At one time or another in our motherhood journey, we have both felt loneliness, helplessness, overwhelm, and exhaustion. On a daily basis, we both experience the wide range of emotions that occur with raising children. We are on this journey with you.

We invite you to join us in building a supportive community for mothers and together change the conversation around postpartum care. Always remember — we are stronger together!
