Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 8:00am

Nydia Garcia Preto & Monica McGoldrick

About the Webinar:

This discussion will explore how triangles operate in family systems and how to help people “detriangle” or get unstuck from the triangles they have gotten into. We will discuss how relationships can get caught up into triangles and the power of detriangling. We will specifically discuss certain relationships that are often fraught with triangles such as in-laws and step-parent/step-child relationships.
