Welcome to another episode of The Jews Next Dor! Our guest today is Dr. Robyn Koslowitz, one of the great leaders in our generation in the parenting realm. She is a licensed clinical psychologist, a parenting educator, and the educational director of the Targeted Parenting Institute.
Targeted Parenting is a parenting system that uses empirically validated techniques to train parents and children to overcome various disorders of childhood in a preventative fashion, in order to minimize or avoid later expensive psychotherapy.
This episode provides powerful insights into how parents can overcome the effects of trauma and PTSD on their own parenting by understanding post-traumatic parenting styles, addressing their trauma responses, educating themselves on child development, and creating secure bonds with their children.
