400: Helping Children + Families With Attachment Injuries - With Robyn Gobbel

1h 9m | Sep 22, 2023

Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week, in celebration of our 400th episode of Therapy Chat, I'm sharing my recent interview with Robyn Gobbel, a former therapist who now focuses her time on writing and educating about what she calls "big, baffling behaviors," and teaching children and families to understand their Owl, Watchdog and Possum brains. Robyn is demystifying child behavior by making neuroscience relatable. She shares about her work, the communities she hosts, and her new book, Raising Kids With Big, Baffling Behaviors. This is a must listen episode for anyone who wants to gain understanding of why children who have been hurt, abandoned and betrayed behave the way they do, and how parents and teachers can reconnect with them.

Visit Robyn's website: where you can find her book, her podcast and the communities she hosts as well as everything she's offering.
