How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who You Are
Depression, anxiety, chronic pain, phobias, obsessive thoughts... these issues plague millions of people every day.

Is it you? Or, could there be another reason you're suffering?

The evidence is compelling. The roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experience or in chemical imbalances in our brains, but rather in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents.

The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited: that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations.

Mark Wolynn, Director of The Family Constellation Institute, is an expert in inherited family trauma. 

He joins Andrea and Lisa to explain what inherited family trauma is, how it can affect people in various ways, and how you can break the destructive pattern via mindfulness, meditation, and visualization.
