Identifying Family Secrets That Breed Dysfunction
Some abuse is dangerously obvious, while other types of abuse creep into our family DNA in covert ways. Keeping family secrets, intimidation, the “Silent Treatment” and “Cyberbullying” are just a few examples of many forms of abuse with troubling outcomes. Often victims ask, “Why did this happen to me?” Or “What can I do?” While abusers will excuse their behavior asking, “Why do you make me do this?” Victims and abusers can rewrite their stories, improve their relationships and break the cycle for their future generations.
