146. If I Can’t Have You, No One Else Can (Kiss of Death Series)

Today’s episode kicks off the first in the Kiss of Death series. I discuss the seriousness of when a partner makes the statement “if I can’t have you, no one can.” Veiled threats are a serious matter and are indicative that you are in possible danger if you are on the receiving end of it. When a person views you as an object that they are not willing to part with unless it’s on their terms, the potential for violence increases drastically. I offer some tips and suggestions if you are in a relationship with someone who delivers this veiled threat to you.

144. Dynamics In Dysfunctional Families; Featuring Laura Connell

Laura K. Connell, Trauma-Informed Author & Coach, and I sit down to discuss her family trauma, which led to her passion for coaching around the dynamics of the dysfunctional family. She and I explore what roles family members play within the broken family. The broken family may be filled with challenging dynamics including abuse, codependency, addiction, estrangement, or high conflict. The dysfunctional roles are the scapegoat, mascot, hero, lost child, and the enabler; and we often vacillate between these roles. Lastly, Laura and I reflect on the impact that family dysfunction has on a person over time and generations.
