What Every Adoptive & Foster Parent Needs to Know About Theory of Mind

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 18th in our series, Dr. Brown and host, Sandra Flach discuss Theory of Mind—the understanding of the feelings and perspectives of others which develops during childhood. Early trauma and prenatal exposure to alcohol and other drugs impacts Theory of Mind.
