Can you recall some really great moments from your childhood? Are they a joy to recall? Would you secretly like to have posters of those moments all over the house? But what about those not-so-good times, or even those parts of our childhood that bring discomfort as we think about them even today? Can we really bask in the best and simply forget the rest?
According to the guest for this program, psychotherapist Loren Buckner, ALL our childhood counts, even the parts we prefer to “delete.” Unaddressed, those parts can cause us and our closest relationships difficulty we don’t understand and certainly don’t need or want. The good news is that Loren will share how uncomfortable experiences and circumstances from our past can be addressed in ways that bring growth and changes that support it. The benefits are well worth the effort.
Loren is the author of the book, ParentWise: The Emotional Challenges of Family Life and How to Deal with Them. Her wealth of experience as a mental health professional and as a mother of now grown children, puts Loren in a position to share what works and what doesn’t in the challenges of parenthood and in contributing to relationships that thrive.
