Episode 316: Connecting with Kids with Trauma with mom of 12 Lisa Qualls

Lisa Qualls is the mom of 12 through birth and adoption, and the co-host of The Adoption Connection Podcast. Lisa has co-written a new book The Connected Parent with the late renowned child psychologist Dr. Karyn Purvis – her final written work. The Connected Parent includes insights from Dr. Purvis’ decades of renowned clinical research devoted to help children coming from hard places. Lisa demonstrates how readers can successfully implement these strategies taught by Dr. Purvis in their homes, just as she did in hers. We talk all about her motherhood journey, adopting multiple children at a time, and how her children have responded to the various challenges in their family.
