APPPAH Live! Exploring Birth Psychology – Strange Situation: the Secret Teachings of Mary Ainsworth with Bethany Saltman, MFA

May 2 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Strange Situation: the Secret Teachings of Mary Ainsworth

Join us for an informal conversation and Q&A with Bethany Saltman author of the book Strange Situation.

Strange Situation: A Mother’s Journey Into the Science of Attachment is inspired by the birth of my daughter in 2006, who I loved dearly, but feared I was failing. Why? Because I was still me, and not the kind of mother I’d hoped to become. So I spent ten years teaching myself the science of attachment, traveling to labs, trainings, and archives, trying to discover what kind of mother I really was, and if I was good enough for her. What I learned changed everything about how I thought of myself, my childhood, and the nature of love.
