Turning the Tide: Parenting in the Wake of Past Trauma

Partner-In Resource

Resource Description

Gives voice to the struggles of parents and caregivers who experienced trauma growing up in their own families. For adults who are living with the painful effects of their own childhood  environment, becoming a parent may introduce a variety of new emotional and functional challenges. As an adult moving into the role of parent, it is common to reflect and implement that which we absorbed from our own caretakers. For some of us, those lessons learned were not nurturing, consistent, or safe, but rather involved fear, abandonment, inconsistency, or other challenging circumstances.
