Every family has a story and it’s likely not your preferred ideal. Familial relationships can be challenging to navigate. Changing dynamics with parents, siblings and extended relatives can feel like a lifelong burden. In her latest book, Drama Free: A Guide to Managing Unhealthy Family Relationships, Nedra Tawwab, MSW, LCSW, offers clear advice for identifying dysfunctional family patterns and choosing the best path to breaking the cycle and moving forward.
She is a New York Times best-selling author, licensed therapist, and sought-after relationship expert. She has practiced relationship therapy for 15 years and is the founder and owner of the group therapy practice, Kaleidoscope Counseling.
In this episode, Krista and Nedra explore how to approach difficult conversations with loved ones and honor yourself in the process. No matter your current relationship status with your family, this is one you won’t want to miss.
“You have to be in relationship with people. You being a parent or a sibling that does not give you a space in their life if you are not creating it.” – Nedra Tawwab, Almost 30 Podcast
