This presentation discusses the importance of recognizing that we all have “stuff” in our history that we bring to relationships.  Specifically, we will focus on understanding how a parent’s own past traumas can affect their parenting. Throughout the presentation there will be a focus on how to gain an awareness of this "baggage" and ways to cope with it so that we can feel more successful as parents.
