Inventory Update

With disruptions in the supply chain and delays at our primary printer, we find that we are dealing with more temporary backorders than usual. Consequently, we want to update you on some of our books that are currently or will soon be unavailable in the short term:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last year at this time, we were hoping that we’d be looking at the COVID pandemic in the rear view mirror. Obviously, the pandemic remains a serious issue for the entire world. Nevertheless, there are many things we can be thankful for as we look back at the previous year. Number one for us at Safer Society Foundation is our customers. Personnel and supply-chain issues have impacted to some extent or another the printers who manufacture our books and our warehouse which ships them. This has occasionally meant being out of stock with some of our titles, as well as experiencing delays with shipping (we HATE delays). But you, our customers, have faced these problems with us with patience and understanding. Thank you for that.

Alan Sroufe on Empathy as an Attachment Outcome

Editor’s note: The is the first in a series of posts in which we look back at past Safer Talk webinars and trainings to pull perspectives that we feel may be of interest to professionals in our field. During his Safer Talk webinar conversation with host David Prescott, Alan Sroufe, author of A Compelling Idea, was asked to give an example of how attachment in infancy influences the kinds of people we become.
