Questions I ask Dr. Connie:

In your experience what causes negative self talk? Are there triggers that kick it off and at what age does it tend to start or does age even matter?

It seems like there would be a lot of negative consequences from engaging in consistent negative self-talk

Is negative self talk as common among men or kids as it is women? 

How do we stop negative self-talk?

Can you share some examples of how to change negative self-talk into something more positive? 

What last thought do you want to leave us with Dr. Connie?
