Ep 47: Interpersonal Neurobiology and Coping Mechanisms w/ Dr. Diane Malaspina

In this episode, I welcome back Dr. Diane Malaspina - a psychologist, yoga instructor, and coach. Together, we explore interpersonal neurobiology and its connection to coping mechanisms in times of overwhelm. Discover the relationship between attachment styles and the coping strategies you've developed through subconscious processes rooted in childhood.


Dr. Malaspina describes how these coping mechanisms were initially formed as a means to perceive caregivers as safe, establishing a foundation of security and predictability in childhood. We then go onto explore how mindfulness-based practices can be used to rewire these patterns, allowing you to cultivate a more resilient and adaptive approach to life's challenges.
