    Creating Relationship with Birth Parents in Adoption

    in Parents

    Ninety-five percent of domestic infant adoptions in the US have some degree of openness, so almost all adoptive parents need to think about creating a lasting healthy relationship with their child's birth mother and birth father. 


    Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support nonprofit, interviews Brenda Romanchik, a therapist in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia, specializing in trauma and adoption issues, her clients include children, adolescents and adults. She is also an adjunct professor for Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, teaching Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the School of Social Work. She has written and presented widely on adoption and trauma issues. She is also a birth mother in an open adoption.

    Truth be told, quite a few of the wealthy didn't have their wealth just given to them. If you read the inspirational stories, you'll find that many of them worked hard to get to where they are now, and their backgrounds were not all that great to start off with. In fact, some of them may have come have even more difficult circumstances than you.


    But why is that they there are able to "make it" but you're over here barely trying to "make it." There's a slight difference between us and them, and we'll talk about what that slight difference is, how we can there, and simple action steps that will get us started.

    Creating Well-BEing: An Emotional Surfing Lesson

    in Self Help

    In my latest eBook Creating Well-BEing I discuss shifting your:



    Mental models
    Physical environment
    Thoughts
    FEELINGS
    Time


    In episode, one I defined stress as “Your perceived inability to control something you want to control.” I shared a basic explanation of behavior based on Perceptual Control Theory.  I gave you three questions to help increase your sense of Well-BEing. In episode two, I focused on your physical environment and in particular creating a space the feeds, your five senses as well as taking time to savor your sensory experiences by being mindful. Last week in episode three, we reflected on thinking and thought patterns.  I shared some red flag phrases and asked you to engage in more metacognition. 


    This week’s show explores feelings.  What are your thoughts about feelings?  Can you control your feelings?  What’s the relationship between your feelings and your actions?


    In English we use the word ‘feel’ to express three different things. So when someone says’ “I feel…” what do they mean?  Johnathan Martensson wrote “Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.” Get an emotional surf lesson by taking thirty minutes and listening to the show.
