Survival behaviors are common among children with a  trauma history. The reason is simple: they often can't articulate unmet needs and, thus, resort to survival tactics and methods to try to meet those needs. While they're common, there are crucial steps we can take, as caregivers, to make sense of, and effectively respond to these behaviors.

In this episode of The Honestly Adoption Podcast, Mike and Kristin, along with Nicole Goerges, walk through these steps, and provide listeners with practical solutions to help them better parent their children.
