Full Description

A clear, compelling, and user-friendly guide to help you understand your family and transform unhealthy dynamics to create a more empowered life

No matter what your relationship with your family looks like today, your family dynamics have a tremendous influence on how you feel about yourself, show up in the world, and relate to others. When these dynamics are subconscious, we remain bound and encumbered by them. But when we bring them to the surface, we can engage our power to change, grow, and create a more meaningful life.

Your Family Revealed is an invitation to a journey of self-discovery. Drawing on 50 years of experience, psychotherapist Elaine Carney Gibson shares an accessible guide for better understanding yourself and your family so that you can find healing—for yourself and your loved ones. Here she provides real-world examples, insightful exercises, and reflection questions to help you navigate your own family’s dynamics, including:

  • How a family system operates—the fundamental ways your history shapes you
  • Safe and unsafe topics—the unspoken roles, rules, patterns, and possibilities within a family
  • Bringing your family’s myths, stories, and secrets into the light in a compassionate way
  • How your own family role has shaped your habits, values, and the way you relate to others
  • Powerful ways to heal the wounds of your past while strengthening the qualities you cherish
“Our stories help us to learn our family’s values,” writes Gibson. “They help us to know who and what is important. They help us to define who we are and our place in the world.” For adults looking to better understand themselves and their families of origin, parents wanting to create and maintain healthy family ecosystems, and therapists seeking practical ways to work with clients, Your Family Revealed is an essential resource.
