On the Podcast: Vienna Pharaon and Nedra Glover Tawwab

In this episode, meet marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon, author of The Origins of You, and therapist and bestselling author Nedra Glover Tawwab, author of Drama Free. Listen in as these authors describe what led them to write their books, and what it was like to record their audiobooks.

None of us had a perfect childhood; we are all carrying around behaviors that don’t serve us—and may in fact be hurting us. But it doesn’t have to be that way, says licensed marriage and family therapist Vienna Pharaon. In The Origins of You, Pharaon unlocks a healing process to help us understand our Family of Origin, reveals how unhealed pain will manifest in our adult behaviors in surprising ways, and teaches us to rewire our programming to meaningfully improve our relationships and our lives, right now and in the future.

Every family has a story. For some of us, our family of origin is a solid foundation that feeds our confidence and helps us navigate life’s challenges. For others, it’s a source of pain, hurt, and conflict that can feel like a lifelong burden. Drama Free is an empowering guide from bestselling relationship expert Nedra Glover Tawwab that offers clear advice for identifying dysfunctional family patterns and choosing the best path to breaking the cycle and moving forward.
