Help! I want ONE place to send to RAD moms who need help and hope.
I want a good all-inclusive list for RAD info, but that's hard! Here's what I've compiled so far, but I want to shorten it to one place and better info.
PLEASE POST ANY SUGGESTIONS!
Christine's videos are wonderful and very honest AND let you laugh so I'd start there. I think the sites are informative, but have found the best support on other blogs of moms who get it.
Therapeutic Parenting DVD
Chaos to Healing
is a 99 minute Therapeutic Parenting 101 DVD by Christine Moers and
Billy Kaplan. Watch it, then watch it again. You are welcome.
Need to watch it right this second? Yeah, you can do that with Amazon Instant Video!
Blog and videos
Christine is a great trauma mama. welcometomybrain.net
MUST SEE Videos: youtube.com/profile?user=christinemoers (What you do with pee is the BEST!)
Therapeutic Parenting Manual by Denise Best - great handbook!
Beyondconsequences.com These books helped but only after we saw a video and really got it. The brain function info is great, although this approach is a struggle with our normal, and our RADicals' history of not trusting.
The Connected Child: Bring hope and healing to your adoptive family.
Orlando RAD retreat
Info about Orlando, a gathering for trauma mamas that is amazing. I highly recommend it.

AGAIN PLEASE POST ANY SUGGESTIONS TO MAKE THIS SHORT, SWEET, BUT HELPFUL, THANKS!
