What Every Adoptive & Foster Parent Needs to Know About Trauma & Cognitive Flexibility

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 11th in our series, Dr. Brown and host, Sandra Flach discuss trauma and cognitive flexibility. Cognitive flexibility can be thought of as the brain’s stick shift—it allows us to switch gears from one task to the next. If you have a child who struggles with transitions, you won’t want to miss this episode. Listen in and learn how cognitive flexibility deficits impact the daily lives of individuals with FASD and/or trauma histories.
