Thoughts from the Couch Podcast

In this solo episode, I talk about family systems and how they affect the relationships we choose for ourselves. This isn’t just limited to romantic relationships, but friendships too. Tune in to hear exactly how our family of origin can influence who we choose to surround ourselves with, without even knowing it! This episode dives into: How our families are our templates to connections and emotions throughout our life. Familiarity is comfortable and predictable, even if it’s dysfunctional. Human’s adoration and desire for predictability. How our subconscious is shaped from our life experiences.  Understanding that a lot of dysfunction is unintentional.  The role of empathy in facing dysfunction. Reflecting on our patterns to transform our habits and lead happier lives.

I’m An Adult Child of an Alcoholic with host Justine Carino, LMHC

Thoughts from the Couch Podcast

In this week’s episode, I practice vulnerability by sharing my experience of being an adult child of an alcoholic.  Although hesitant to open up, I found it important to share this part of my story as it is relevant to many other individuals. 1 in 8 adults in America meet criteria for an alcohol use disorder. 1 in 4 families are impacted by a family member who struggles with alcoholism. Also, more than 10% of children in the U.S. live with a parent with an alcohol use disorder.  Many are affected in one way or another.  Today I chose to share my story so others can know they’re not alone.   This episodes dives into:  How I learned my father was an alcoholic. My father’s adverse childhood experiences and their impact on his disease. Alcohol as a learned coping skill for managing trauma related pain. The importance of boundaries in alcoholic families. Divorced family systems. What I learned from going to therapy. Common traits shared by adult children of alcoholics. Al-Anon support groups. My father’s journey to sobriety.  Guest Info: Connect with Justine Carino on Instagram @_thoughtsfromthecouch_ or her website here. Podcast Disclaimer
