A New Look at Surviving Your Difficult Family
Family life can feel tremendously difficult. Because of the unavoidable intimacy and interconnectedness of family living, each person in a family is held hostage to the personalities, agendas, and shadows of everyone else in the family. You can’t easily avoid your mother or your father, your mate, your children, or your siblings. In a picture postcard family, where everyone loves one another, roots for one another, and never criticizes one another, you might flourish beautifully. In many families, just surviving is the issue.
How can you survive—and thrive—in a difficult family? In this class you’ll learn how to stay calm even in a highly stressful environment, how to maintain your balance in the middle of family crises, how to set boundaries that keep you safe and sane, and more. However you experience emotional distress in your family—as anxiety, depression, addiction, procrastination, mental confusion, or physical symptoms—in this class you will receive the tools you need to make every day feel better. Join world-renowned author, lecturer, and mental health advocate Dr. Eric Maisel as he teaches you how to survive and thrive in a difficult family by using life-changing techniques that anyone can master.
