Adult TCKs: Talking to Your Parents about Childhood Trauma

The majority of TCKs experience childhood trauma due to their upbringing, and as Adult TCKs begin looking back and processing those traumas, it can be healing to discuss those experiences with your parents. However, navigating those conversations can be scary and hard. In this 90-minute workshop we will give you practical tips on how to approach and navigate those conversations to build connection and trust rather than strain and separation.
