Family of Origin

Family of Origin

Family systems operate in a way that ensures the continued survival of the group. Our FAMILY OF ORIGIN — the family one grew up in, is the place that people typically learn to become who they are. From the family of origin, a person learns how to communicate, process our emotions and learn how to get our needs met.

Pathology of the family system recreates all the transgenerational abuse and perpetuates the family systems pathology. Due to the nature of these dysfunctional family systems young children develop PTSD similar to that of trauma survivors. This adapted self is the co-dependent continually adjusting to the external world whilst loosing connection of the self and appropriate relationships. The co-dependent client presents to GP’s, psychologists, psychotherapist and other practitioners in an adaptive way. The co-dependent client is constantly looking to the outside to be fixed. This workshop will demonstrate how a, Top down, Bottom up approach is needed to work with codependence and trauma and the power of mindfulness practice in the healing process.
