7 Skills To Avoid Family Drama – 2 Part
Families have stories about the family as a whole as well as each individual member. Some of these stories can have a positive effect on us, others negative.

Challenges surface when the narratives our family holds about us do not truly reflect who we are or allow us space to articulate our needs, wants and feelings.
