Oxygen Mask Episode 26: Visualize your resources


In this second episode with Shannon Andreson, we go deeper into reframing summer in terms of resources. We discuss two more LifeCourse tools that help visualize and communicate our own or our kids’ supports, connections, and strengths. Don’t miss the links and examples in the show notes!

Example: Beth’s Integrated Supports Star. Note: The underlined items are those that “fell off” during the pandemic and could be resumed if doing so would be supportive.

Wait a minute, what is LifeCourse? We’ve talked about it on the podcast before, but it’s been awhile. Check out Oxygen Mask Podcast Episode 20: LifeCourse Tools for Planning and Advocacy to learn more.
