Glass and Out Podcast Ep. 185: Dr. Jody Carrington

Aaron Wilbur

I’m a husband, father, sports nut and Founder of The Coaches Site. I enjoy cooking, watching live music and hiking the North Shore mountains with my family. My son is a football player, which has turned me into a big football fan. It’s helped me appreciate what hockey parents go through, especially those who have little experience with the sport, when trying to navigate their child up the hockey ladder.

Welcome back everyone!

The hockey season is finally here and we’re happy to return for season 5 of the Glass and Out podcast.

To kick things off, we welcome Dr. Jody Carrington.

Dr. Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career working with children and families who have experienced trauma. Having grown up in Viking, Alberta, home of the Sutter brothers, she worked on the Mental Health Inpatient Units of the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary for 10 years. Through her experience shes developed an affinity for helping teams and organizations solve their most complex, human centered problems.

Today, a lot of her work is focused on the Big People, as she describes them, who are in a position to look after the little people, or kids. As she puts it, through the relationships that young children have with their caregivers, they begin to develop the “story” of themselves and others around them. They decide two things: if they are worthy of love and support and if they are capable and competent beings. When they have these things in place, they have a much greater chance of developing into strong and healthy adults.

If you have ever questioned the importance of your role in the lives of the players you coach, you wont after today.

In addition to her work as a psychologist, shes also the best selling author of three books, Kids These Days, Teachers These Days and the soon to be released Feeling Seen. 

Listen as she shares how we connect with our players, the importance of staying regulated and self-care, and why “lighting up” is every coaches superpower.
