In this episode, we are excited to be joined by Dr. Cara Goodwin, founder of Parenting Translator. We discuss the role of research in information available to parents on parenting and child development. We focus on several important themes present in social media regarding parenting, including a one size fits all approach to parenting, attachment and behavior theory and reward systems. We also discuss the importance of realistic expectations for parents.

Dr. Cara Goodwin has a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Neuroscience from the University of Virginia, a Master’s in Developmental Psychiatry from Cambridge University, a Master’s in Child Psychology from Vanderbilt University, and a PhD in Child Psychology from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She completed an APA accredited clinical psychology internship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University.  She is currently licensed as a clinical psychologist in the state of Virginia.
