This free lesson comes from ICM's Christian Counseling course Healing From the Dysfunctional Family. This course was taught live in ICM's virtual classroom as part of our Live Web-Class program.
The dysfunctional family and its effects on the individual is a topic that is very important to explore. There are many levels of dysfunction but the effects of all dysfunctional histories can last a lifetime. Denial, escape and various coping mechanisms are the norm for those raised within the dysfunctional family. To deny that the effects of our past are not still influencing us is not wise. By taking an honest look at the dysfunctional family and its dynamics much healing can take place. The Bible says – "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:" (Hosea 4:6). Understanding the issues and gaining the skills to deal with them is critical to overcoming past obstacles and living in a victorious future.
