We all play mutiple roles in life. Every day, these roles reflect our identity in our work, our play, and our relationships. Although we might not think about it much on a conscious level, our perception of who we are affects what we do and the kind of person we become. For that reason, it matters greatly who we think we are.
Is it possible for a person to be “caught” in a role they know is harmful to them and others? If so, what can they do about it? Do people ever fulfill life roles they never chose, but that were chosen for them? Why would individuals remain in roles they don’t like or want? What has to happen for that to change? Our guest on this program, Jennie Aguirre, will help us with answers and insights to these questions and others, especially as they relate to young people. She will share with us how negative roles develop, and how they can be challenged and changed.
