You Don’t Have to Become a Psychologist to Help Your Hurt Kids

You Don’t Have to Become a Psychologist to Help Your Hurt Kids

Recently I was talking to a foster parent working towards adoption who said she was considering going back to school for psychology to help the kids she was fostering and adopting.  She was seriously considering this because it is so difficult to find answers on how to help kids with severe attachment issues and traumas.  Isn’t that sad!?  Adoption shouldn’t be this hard!

I’m sure many of you can relate to this feeling…I sure can!  I was actually in a masters program for counseling when we started foster care and was appalled at the lack of answers I found there.  I asked one professor how I could help my foster daughter and he had not advice or direction to give, only a warning…he told me to be ready for her to falsely accuse me of abusing her.  That was his answer!  That was unacceptable so I set out on a quest to find answers, help my foster kids and eventually to provide these answers to others in my situation.
