Family Estrangement: Should You Repair or Run? with Dr. Galit Atlas We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle

    • Relationships

1. Cutting off contact with family is on a dramatic rise – how to know if there’s hope of repair, or if self-preservation requires distance.  
2. How to have present, productive conversations with our parents about the past.  
3. Why we grieve the loss of a family member even if we know it’s healthiest to cut them out. 
4. Attachment styles, emotional honesty, and the difference between forgiveness and repair. 
5. What to do and say – and what NOT to say – when attempting to reconnect with an estranged loved one.
