We Need To Talk is my internet radio show where I delve into a bevy of psychological and social topics. Just like in my practice we use a lot of humor to educate and enlighten, even if I do continue to swear like a sailor. We take an honest, thoughtful and entertaining approach to discussing topics that you or people you know are dealing with in everyday life. If you are looking for something that could be helpful or relatable for what you are going through, check our show out.
What’s Wrong With Your Dad is the true story of what it was like growing up and surviving a family with both alcoholism and Borderline Personality Disorder. It is told in the first person in a very conversational way, like the author and the reader are just sitting over coffee talking. It explains in clear layman’s terms the behaviors of both alcoholism and Borderline Personality Disorder and lets the reader know in no uncertain terms that the behavior was not in any way created by any adult child of either an alcoholic or BPD.
What’s Wrong With Your Dad is a story of survival and a story of hope. It follows the author from birth to her late 40’s. From small farm town in California to her own private practice in Mesa, AZ. It is an empowering journey of learning how to survive damaging parents and teaching others how to survive damaging parents. Although the subject matter is sometimes hard to read there is a lot of humor, a lot of love and a lot of acceptance and understanding that will bring the reader to a greater understanding of what drives both alcoholism and BPD. The book teaches the reader that just because your childhood was rocky and not much fun it does not mean you cannot have success and fun as an adult.
What’s Wrong With Your Dad was written in response to numerous clients who mistakenly believed that they were alone in the universe in having alcoholic and dysfunctional parents. In writing this book I have bared my soul and shown that they are not alone in surviving a frightening and baffling childhood due to both the personality disorder and the alcoholism of the parents. There is always, always hope.
This new book by Kris Godinez gives a conglomeration of case studies to illustrate what motivates and drives an abusive relationship. Why some people stay and others don’t.
