How Healthy is My Family?
Let's face it, no family is perfect.
For many of us, families can represent a source of support and unconditional love. For others, the family experience may be unhealthy or dysfunctional where relationships or communication may be impaired and family members are
unable to attain closeness and self-expression.
The attached February Whale Watch student newsletter lists characteristics of a dysfunctional family, the impact of growing up in a dysfunctional family system, and steps to overcome the negative Impacts of a dysfunctional family system.
