As a mother of 7, and former therapeutic foster parent to 51 children, attachment and infant mental health have been constant topics in my life for the last 28 years. My children range from age 7 to 28. Three of my children were adopted: at the age of 4 years, 2 years, and 7 months. I am now a proud grandmother to an incredibly wonderful 14 month-old.

APPPAH PPNE Student Spotlight: Pamela Yenawine, CST-D
(Diplomat Certified CranioSacral Therapist)

As a late life career change, I began to study CranioSacral Therapy (CST) in late 2001. I had received CST for 7 years prior to this, and my own results convinced me of the power of this gentle therapy. I decided to take Pediatrics as I was often the one in the room who could help a baby settle. I came away from that class with more than I expected - having experienced my own body’s memory of my conception, gestation, birth and bonding and (lack of) attachment.
