Listen now: Episode 9: Attachment, the human operating systems?
Thank you so much for creating this pod-cast. With being a foster parent and trying to be trauma-informed parents, this has been helpful for us to listen to.

I do have a request for a topic if possible to piggy back off the attachment aspect if possible- Is on facilitating attachment with teenagers placed in our home who have experienced trauma in many different aspects.

Or could you approach the topic of Trauma-informed and the foster care system?
Thank you so much!
