There are 5 recordings on this page.

Dr. Lucia C.  “Re-parenting Our Selves: Renegotiating with the Inner Critical Parent” Self-acceptance gained through Inner Family work relieves us from the burden of perfectionism and the need to rescue and protect the Inner Child in others.

Don C.  “Completing the Circle in the Cycle of Violence” Traumatized children are pushed to the point of exhaustion and collapse as part of the family’s “bop ‘til you drop” scenario. The workshop will examine the obvious and hidden ways this can happen.


Lesley R.  “ACA in the Workplace”
Join Lesley as she expands on how our ACA Characteristics affect us in the workplace. The workshop allows us to discuss our common experiences and help each other reduce the chaos that we can bring to our work lives.


Mary Cook
Mary has over 31 years of clinical practice treating a broad range of addiction and psychological problems.


Dr. Lucia C.  “Getting Off the Teeter Totter”
Practicing self-care through Inner Family work removes expectations from others to be the loving and protective parents we never had. We will identify power imbalances in current relationships and learn how to get off the teeter totter in which one person assumes a parental role and the other a child role.
