Are you struggling with the pain and complexity of parent-adult-child estrangement? In this eye-opening conversation with psychotherapist, author, and ReConnection Club founder Tina Gilbertson, we uncover the root causes and contributing factors to this challenging family dynamic, and explore strategies for healing and reconnection.
Throughout our discussion, we examine how values, loyalties, financial problems, sibling issues, and infertility can contribute to estrangement. Tina enlightens us on the role our individualistic culture plays in this issue and shares her insights on reconnecting with adult children through personal healing, growth, and addressing any underlying issues before seeking family therapy.
We also dive into navigating communication with estranged children, and the heartache that comes with feeling disconnected. Learn how to avoid making a difficult situation worse and the importance of understanding and healing family estrangement. Don't miss this valuable opportunity to gain guidance and support from Tina's expertise and compassionate approach as you work towards resolution and reconnection.
