In this webinar, Dr. Rowell explores how a child’s early experience with hunger or food insecurity can result in survival behaviors that continue in foster or adoptive families. These behaviors can include eating quickly, stealing or hiding food, getting upset if asked to share or slow down while eating, and more. The presentation helps parents understand the cause of the behaviors and explore how parents can respond to help their children heal from their past deprivation. This solution-oriented webinar covers tips and strategies to reduce food anxiety and help the family build attachment over meals.
