Season 8 Episode 7: Healing Generational Trauma & Breaking from “Stable Misery” with Dr. Lynyetta Willis


“Neither you nor your family are broken, you just have habits that need to be.”

Today we are joined by Dr. Lynyetta Willis; psychologist, family empowerment coach, speaker, and award-winning author, who helps frustrated families break free from Stable Misery® and unhelpful parenting and partnership patterns.

We’re asking; what are the unhelpful stories we tell ourselves, and are these stories different for marginalized communities? Dr. Willis brings so much hope and optimism to her work, we hope you feel as empowered from this conversation as we do.

In this show we're talking about:

  • THESE 5 main habits to work on to transform your life
    • Questioning the stories we tell ourselves
    • Chronic stress and survival mode 
    • Marginalized community experiences 
    • Analyzing the experience of disempowerment 
    • Advice for principals & teachers wanting to help families through difficult patterns
