Media Format: Audio Online Streaming

SKU: WC19-WK707SA Category:


With the rise of the divided family, young people often get caught in patterns of addiction as an
escape from high conflict parents. This happens inside the home and after divorce and in
remarriage. This workshop will explore some of the common roots to the issue of youth
impacted by divorce who turn to addiction as a way out of the pain. We will also take a look at
research and today?۪s pop culture and media with a goal of increasing compassion and
understanding for those clients and organizations we serve.

Presented by: Tammy Daughtry, M.MFT. & Jay Daughtry, M.MFT.
