Has Trauma Affected the Child You?re Caring For?Just as you prepared your home to welcome a new child, it is important to prepare your heart and mind-especially if the child has suffered from a background of trauma. Perhaps your invitation for love is met with hostility, and you find that this new member of your family rejects connection. If so, then it?s critical to acknowledge the effects of trauma on a child?s ability to attach.Mike and Kristin Berry realized this when they became adoptive and foster parents. In their twenty-year marriage, they have had the joy of adopting eight children and fostering twenty-three. They now offer guidance from their own journey to others parenting a child who has experienced past trauma. In Securely Attached, they offer practical insights that are supported by therapeutic and medical facts, so all parents can provide best for the children in their care. You?ll learn:How trauma changes the brainHow to identify trauma-induced behaviorsHow to identify attachment disordersHow to advocate for your child in the community.Get the help you need to better care for the children in your home. Discover how you can create a family and home that is safe and supportive so your children can grow to trust and become securely attached.ReviewPraise for Securely AttachedChildren grow, develop, and learn in the context of relationships. Based on lessons learned through lived experience and their professional work, Kristin and Mike Berry-with humor, truth-telling, and insight-bring this important message to parents and caregivers of all stripes. I highly recommend this book to all foster and adoptive parents who find themselves in the middle of the night asking, ?What do I do now??-IRA J. CHASNOFF, MD, President, NTI Upstream; professor of Clinical Pediatrics, University of Illinois College of MedicineI want this book put in the hands of all adoptive parents who are not already experts in developmental trauma. Even those who have heard this information before can appreciate the relatable voice with which the Berrys teach. Mike and Kristin are wonderful, quiet leaders and knowledgeable teachers. This book shares beautiful, understandable examples. Readers will feel understood, informed, and empowered to parent through trauma with love.-BROOKE RANDOLPH, LMHC, Founder & Director, Counseling at The Green House; Certified Brainspotting Therapist & Consultant; Certified Imago Relationship TherapistMike and Kristin Berry?s new book, Securely Attached, is an engaging conversation between the Berrys and their readers. The Berrys coach adoptive and foster parents, giving examples, scripts, and information in a format that answers typical questions: ?Why do they do that?? and ?What should I do?? The practical advice in the book runs the gamut of parenting experiences, from an observation checklist to pin down the source of a child?s dysregulation, to how to form a safety plan for a child/teen who poses a danger to others. In one of my favorite chapters, the authors describe the ?floors? of a child/teen?s brain, and how to react accordingly. Securely Attached succeeds in providing straightforward explanations for complex issues. The authors provide plans to reduce the challenges to attachment-trauma, sensory issues, losses, and behaviors. Every reader who is parenting through adoption, guardianship, or foster care will find new methods and insights in this book. Best of all, they will experience the Berrys cheering for their families.-DEBORAH D. GRAY, LICSW, author of Promoting Healthy Attachments; Attaching Through Love, Hugs, and Play; Attaching in Adoption; and Nurturing Adoptions; coauthor of Games and Activities for Attaching with Your ChildSecurely Attached is for every foster and/or adoptive parent. Mike and Kristin have bravely taken the science of trauma and attachment and coupled it with real-life examples, based on their years of personal experience, and made a complete r
