It's Episode 3 of the ETC Podcast and our guests are Emmelie Pickett and Lisa Qualls, co-authors with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis of the new book "The Connected Parent." In this episode JD and Tona talk about The Connected Parent book, but we also dive deep into the story behind the book - how Emmelie, Lisa and Dr. Purvis' lives intersected and what motivated each of them to conquer some major obstacles to bring the book into the world.  You'll also hear our conversation on attachment, our pasts and the need for self care routines for parents (and a story or two of what that looks like for dads as well). Emmelie talks about the work of The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development in school districts and the judicial system and the free TBRI classes being offered right now!Lastly, Lisa and Emmelie were kind enough to give 5 books away to our audience, so make sure to tune in all the way through this episode for details on how you can win a copy of The Connected Parent!

How did we get here? America's racial history with Dr. Charles McKinney - Ep 2

How did we get here? Civil Rights Historian Dr. Charles McKinney joins us to discuss the history of the civil rights struggle in America, being a black parent in 2020 and advice for transracial adoptive parents with their children of color. A word to our majority culture (white) listeners: as many have noted over the past few weeks, there is a deep need for listening and learning about the plight of our black and brown brothers and sisters. This conversation with Dr. McKinney is not the end all be all - rather it is a starting point for many of us as we journey together to bring healing and peace to our families, our communities and the systems that govern them.  To connect further with our guest today, the brilliant Dr. Charles McKinney, find him on Twitter @CharlesWMcKinn2 and buy his books here!
