Growth in Caregiving: Healing Through Trauma

0


Lisa Kendall, the caregiver to caregivers and social worker specializing in gerontology, brings a wealth of knowledge as she speaks about challenges during caregiving. Not every caregiver’s relationship with their care recipient is idyllic. There may be painful family functioning in your past and adverse childhood experiences that impact the adult child when called upon to provide care. If this is the case, how can you cope with caregiving when there is pain in your past? Lisa explains how to promote healing and growth, reminding us that growth comes in many forms such as gaining the ability to set boundaries or being assertive when expectations are made.

There is hope after trauma and you will hear how it is possible to grow and heal through trauma-informed approaches that can help you not only survive but thrive after trauma. Relationships are key for support, especially for caregivers, and care partnerships are a great example of caregiving relationships where everyone in that relationship has the opportunity to give and to grow. If there’s pain in your past and you’re called upon to be a caregiver for someone who caused that pain, this is the podcast for you.
