The following therapeutic parenting hacks are designed just for you, tired and wired parents spending a lot of time zigging and zagging to avoid the dreaded Dysregulation Blow-up, Melt-down Blues. I know that tune. These therapeutic parenting hacks will help. You gotta play to win though. Love and a good parenting hack matters.
These hacks are derived from Ce Eshelman’s own therapeutic experience with adoptive children. They are also informed by the work of Karyn Purvis and David Cross who wrote the book The Connected Child. Ce was fortunate to train in Trust-based Relational Intervention by Dr. Purvis before her death in 2016. Dan Hughes and many other attachment researchers contributed to these concepts, as well. Enjoy.
