Throwback Episode: Repairing What We've Ruptured with Carissa Woodwyk

We've all done it. We've lost our temper, checked out, popped off, said something we shouldn't have or didn't say something we should have in a moment of weakness. If you're like us, you've probably already had a moment (or several) moments like this today - it's ok. Take a deep breath and let Marriage and Family Therapist Carissa Woodwyk and ETC's Tona Ottinger walk you through how to repair when you've ruptured something with yourself, your partner or a kiddo. Special heads up - be sure to listen all the way to the end to hear Carissa's perspective on this as an adoptee when she shares an intimate moment of self discovery related to her own story - you don't want to miss it.  To learn more about Carissa and her work, be sure to check out her first appearance on the show here or follow her on Instagram or Facebook!

Special MLK Day Throwback Episode: How We Got Here with Dr. Charles McKinney

Today, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day, we felt it would be appropriate to bring back one of our favorite episodes, our episode with Dr. Charles McKinney from Season One. How did we get here? College Professor, Author and 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 years, 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 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!

ETC - Where We've Been, Where We're Going

It's been a busy few weeks for us moving offices at ETC and we couldn't help but stop and think about our past and our future. Moving is funny that way - it helps us appreciate where we've been and look ahead to where we're going. If you've been listening to the show from the beginning, chances are, you know ETC's history - but for those of you who don't, we take the first few minutes of the show today to outline how Empowered to Connect came to be . We then shift gears to talk about what's happening now, what had been planned for 2020 and what you can expect to see in the second half of 2021 and beyond!  To learn more about ETC, check out our website, follow us on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube! ...
