Parenting in the Shadows: Addressing Substance Use and Broken Homes

Apr 16, 2024

Dr. Cristina Utti, an Educator and Author of 'Breaking Infinity: A Memoir' speaks from the heart about her journey through her near fatal substance abuse and eating disorders.  Together we'll reflect on the complex web of family dynamics and the repeating cycles of behavior passed down through generations.

We dive deep into the reality of growing up in a broken home, the normalization of risky behaviors among our youth, and the pressing need for supportive conversations between parents and children.

Join us as we discuss:

  • Dr. Utti's childhood and personal journey to recovery

  • The effects of a broken home and how best to prevent it

  • The dangers of potential drug addiction for future generations
