What Every Adoptive & Foster Parent Needs to Know About Alexithymia

Welcome to The Adoption & Foster Care Journey—a podcast to encourage, educate and equip you to care for children in crisis through adoption, foster care and kinship care.


We are thrilled to bring you a series of bonus episodes featuring special guest. Dr. Jerrod Brown PhD. In each of these bonus episodes, Dr. Brown will share what every adoptive and foster parent needs to know regarding FASD, trauma, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).


On this week’s bonus episode, the 17th in our series, Dr. Brown and host, Sandra Flach discuss Alexithymia—a personality trait which impacts the ability to express or understand emotions. While not a disorder, Alexithymia does impact a large population of individuals including those with trauma histories and FASD.
