1. #186- Rita Bliven: An International Kidnapping and Learning Your Attachment Style Jackson Huff 48:11

This week I speak with Rita Bliven about her extraordinary story of being involved in a parental international kidnapping as a young child. She share that story, being reunited with her mother, and the impact being separated from her mother at such a critical time in develop of bonds has had on her life. Rita has an upcoming book, Canyons & Fireworks, which details her lifelong journey of healing from a debilitating avoidant attachment style. From this place of healing and love Bliven has been able to enjoy an abundant life. In Canyons & Fireworks, she is honest about the cause, confusion, victories, setbacks, and the full process of healing. Bliven’s hope is that by sharing her story, she will encourage others to explore their own attachment styles.

I am in admissions and advising by profession where I speak with students every day about their future and goals. I have spent a decade learning peoples life stories and what makes them tick. So, a few years ago I decided to take that passion for people and make a podcast. Through this I have been able to speak with a lot of amazing people. People like Bob Eubanks (The Newlywed Game), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Maddie Musselman (2x Olympic Gold Medalist), Francois Clemmons (Mister Rogers' Neighborhood), and countless others.
