Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center is sponsoring a free lecture in Austin, Texas on Thursday, August 9 given by Dr. Pamela Monday, LPC, LMFT, on the topic of “Trans-Generational Patterns.” It will be held at the Riverbend Church from 7:00 to 8:30pm and no registration is required.
The topic will focus on exploring the unconscious family patterns that continue to be passed down across the generations, and then learn how to transform those patterns into healthy behaviors. Learning objectives include identifying three family myths or rules that people keep repeating in spite of best efforts at recovery; identifying which family loyalties are keep people stuck in dysfunctional patterns; and setting specific goals about how to interrupt those patterns and creating more functional behaviors moving forward.
Dr. Monday is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor. She completed her doctoral training at the University of Texas and has been a therapist for more than 30 years.
