Leanda Weimer comes on the podcast to discuss her work in attachment focused therapy. We discuss how important it is for adoptive parents to learn their attachment style, as well as do their own emotional work when choosing to parent through adoption. Leanda discusses how adoptive parents must focus on attaching to their children and not vice-versa, and how a persons attachment style greatly impacts their parenting. We wrap up with therapy techniques that have helped adoptive and foster families heal and bond.
