Welcome to Attachment Theory in Action! Our podcast is dedicated to therapists, social workers, counselors and psychologists who are working with clients from an attachment-based perspective. Interviews are conducted with individuals who are doing clinical work as well as leading attachment theory researchers.
Today, Karen will continue her conversation with Dr. Judith Eckerle, director of the Adoption Medicine Clinic in Minneapolis, MN, on the importance of global assessments when looking at attachment issues. A graduate of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Dr. Eckerle completed a pediatrics residency at the New York Presbyterian Hospital and a fellowship in international adoption at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
An international adoptee from South Korea, Dr. Eckerle feels a close bond to adopted children and their families. Her personal history combined with her medical training strengthens her perspective as she works with children on health and transition issues.
