More about the pandemic in this shorter show, including the necessity of thorough coronavirus testing that can allow most people to resume their normal lives. Wearing masks is an important part of the prevention process, as the Asians have been demonstrating (as well as the Americans during the 1918 influenza pandemic). The questions about feeling loved and being loved in your family system relate to the development of secure attachment, so we cover highlights of a germane chapter of Parenting from the Inside Out. The ABC’s of attachment (attunement, balance, coherence) are explored.
