SHOW DESCRIPTION: In this podcast I talk to bestselling author, relationship therapist and clinical social worker Nedra Tawwab about her new book Drama Free, managing unhealthy family relationships, creating a safe space for children at home, breaking generational cycles again, why parents aren’t solely responsible for sibling relationships, and so much more! In Drama Free, Nedra offers clear advice for identifying dysfunctional family patterns and choosing the best path to break the cycle and moving forward. Covering topics including the trauma of emotional neglect, the legacy of addicted or absent parents, mental health struggles in siblings and other relatives and more, this clear and compassionate guide will help you take control of your own life and honor the person you truly are. This book is an invaluable road map for understanding and moving past family struggles and living your life, your way.
