Fostering Parenthood

Episode 3: Trauma, triggers and trying: trauma-informed parenting

Featuring Dr. Dorit Saberi

It’s safe to say most foster youth come with their own level of trauma before they arrive in your care. You may feel lost, confused, or even triggered by trying to deal with the trauma of your youth. Our guest, Dr. Dorit Saberi is a foster parent, and a licensed psychologist who specializes in trauma recovery. In this episode, she provides helpful insight and tips on how to help your foster youth cope with trauma.

Dorothy Daniels Hi, I’m Dorothy Daniels, I’m a pediatric nurse, a sexual health educator, a mom of 12, and a foster parent just like you. When I became a foster parent, I realized that caregivers oftentimes got overlooked with support, resources, and help during this journey because most things focused on the kids. Fostering Parenthood is that support for caregivers.

Dr. Dorit Saberi is the Supervising Psychologist and Co-Founder/Clinical Director of the Safe Harbor- Trauma Recovery Center at Harbor UCLA Medical Center. She is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) – David Geffen School of Medicine and an investigator at the Lundquist Institute, Harbor UCLA Medical Center.
