The School of Life ‘Getting Over your Parents’

Thursday, July 4, 2024 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for a new series of events in collaboration with The School of Life. Our first event is ‘Getting Over your Parents’.

Our parents are a huge deal: and no matter our relationship to them, who we are today (our love stories, our attitudes, our self-esteem) is crucially connected to our relationships with our origin families.

Following on from the bestselling How To Overcome Your Childhood, Getting Over Your Parents is a practical guide on how to navigate the complex legacies left to us by our parents, and how to parent ourselves. By exploring different types of parents, such as “The Preoccupied Parent”, “The Overprotective Parent”‘ and “The Controlling Parent”, it offers a vocabulary to understand some of the stranger and more difficult things that parents sometimes do to their children, as well as giving advice on how to move forward from our puzzles or confusions.

The emphasis is never on blame, always on understanding.

Offering constructive solutions for dealing with the symptoms of a difficult childhood, this book helps us to explore the past so that we can avoid the mistakes our parents made, and secure for ourselves the more creative, calm and loving future we deserve.
