This week's episode combines Emmalee and Jen's love for therapy and the Disney movie, Encanto, by discussing how Encanto so perfectly depicts family systems. Emmalee and Jen tell us about common, family roles we take on like the “caretaker” or the “scapegoat," how these roles can serve us and be reinforced externally, the story your family tells about you vs. what your story actually is, how trauma can inform these family roles, vulnerability, being the helpful one, and of course, Emmalee’s rendition of We Don’t Talk About Bruno. Tune in to gain insight, awareness, and action!
