Family Stew, Our Relationship Legacy with guest Anne Salter
January 16, 2012
Hosted by Mary Woods
Do you have a good feeling of relationship with your family of origin? Are you troubled by frequent painful episodes? Are there particular members of your family with whom you are carrying feelings of jealousy, anger, or distrust? Do you find that these same reactions often happen in other relationships? People have become aware of the importance of their family of origin and that of their parents, etc. We are all emotionally and intellectually composed of much of whom they are/have been. Often we are angry and deny being anything like e.g. mom or dad, but similarities are always there, some of it in the form of painful behaviors. Our guest today will discuss various therapy where one can heal past wounds. Anne’s new book, "Family Stew," is all about our relationship with our roots.
