Codependency is a complex pattern of behavior that often emerges within families, characterized by an excessive reliance on others for emotional well-being and a lack of personal boundaries. These dysfunctional dynamics can give rise to a range of problems, including strained relationships, unresolved conflicts, and hindered individual growth. However, family therapy offers a promising approach to address codependent behaviors and cultivate healthier relationships. With the guidance and support of a skilled family therapist, families can delve into the root causes of codependency and work towards developing more balanced and fulfilling relationships.
Join host Dina Sargeant in this episode of All Together as she welcomes Dr. Lauren D. Pitts-Bounds, EdD, LMFT, Life Coach, a passionate Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Life Coach. She is also a CEO and founder of Legacy Counseling & Life Coaching, LLC, which was founded for the purpose of helping clients to develop in all areas of their lives: emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually, and providing counseling services to individuals, couples, families, and groups including scholar-athletes and professional athletes in the states of Texas and Delaware.
During this episode, Dr. Lauren defines family codependency as a ripple effect, originating from problematic behavior that permeates the entire family system, leading to unhealthy patterns of functioning. She discusses the prevalence of codependent relationships in various contexts, such as parent-child relationships, sibling relationships, and intimate partner relationships. Dr. Lauren emphasizes the significance of addressing and healing from trauma and mental health issues. She encourages everyone to educate themselves about codependency and consider therapy, even if they are not consciously aware of any underlying trauma.
Tune in to this enlightening conversation as Dina Sargeant and Dr. Lauren shed light on the concept of codependency within families and offer valuable insights for healing and growth.

Family rituals may seem like small and insignificant events. They can be as simple as a weekly family dinner or watching movies on the weekends. However, they play a crucial role in strengthening the bonds between family members and creating a sense of belonging and identity.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant was joined by Aidyn Macfarlane, a certified early childhood educator who now works as a filmmaker and video editor at Life Management Science Labs (LMSL). Aidyn has an eclectic range of knowledge in the humanities, including anthropology, sociology, and psychology. He has come onto the show today to speak about family rituals and their enduring importance.
They discussed how rituals and practices are important in families and agreed on thinking of how to make these traditions enjoyable for everyone. However, they also emphasized the need for these traditions to evolve and adapt to the changing times and cultural values. They also highlighted the importance of reflecting on what is meaningful to one's own family while still keeping significant family traditions alive.

After a natural disaster, the emotional aftermath can be devastating, leaving long-lasting scars on survivors, especially those who have lost loved ones or have been physically injured. These emotional wounds can be difficult to heal and may require significant time and effort to rebuild their lives.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant is joined by Michael Riley, an experienced accredited Counsellor, Couples Therapist, licensed Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP), Nationally Accredited Mediator, Clinical Supervisor, Coach, Group-Work Facilitator, Juvenile Justice DFV Consultant & Conference Convenor, Men's Behaviour Change Specialist, DCJ Family Group Conference Mediator, and Education Consultant. Over the past 20 years, he has worked with NSW Corrections, Relationships Australia, Juvenile Justice, Family and Community Services, and private organizations. His focus is primarily on learned optimism to deal with grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and suicide prevention.
During the episode, Michael emphasizes the importance of addressing the emotional trauma and potential long-term effects of natural disasters on families. He highlights that each individual's experience is unique, and therapists should avoid judging or comparing clients. He also recommends working with people in a group rather than individually after natural disasters, which can create a support mechanism for each other once external support leaves.

As we age, so too do our relationships with family members. The dynamics within an aging family are constantly evolving, and these changes can bring both opportunities and challenges. It is important to understand ageism as part of our lives, and the need for long-term care system to support people as they grow older in their homes.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant was joined by Dr. Stacey Gordon, DSW, LMSW, Program Director of Next Phase Adult Caregiving and Retirement for the Work Life office at New York University. She provides personalized consultations and develops programs to address structural ageism, and is dedicated to elevating conversations and dismantling negative stereotypes around aging.
At the beginning of the episode, Dr. Stacey argues that ageism perpetuates negative stereotypes and can limit older people's abilities to be independent and points out that people age in many different ways. She discusses the negative consequences of exposure to negative stereotypes of aging and how exposure to positive stereotypes can lead to a longer life. Dr. Stacey also highlights the importance of promoting independence among aging family members, and suggests that families should focus on having conversations with the older family members to support their independence.

Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, and the issue of screen time has become increasingly prevalent in families. It is not only adults who are dependent on their gadgets, but also children who have grown up with smartphones for their entertainment. This dependence on technology can impact the dynamic of relationships within families, and it is important to find a balance between technology usage and daily life activities.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant was joined by Gabriella Joustra, host of the Home Organization Science podcast, Room by Room, and the Household Management Science podcast, On the House to discuss screen time and its impact on her family.
Gabriella shared her struggle with addiction to her smartphone and how it negatively impacts her life at home.

Maintaining relationships with family can be challenging, especially when dealing with traditional family dynamics. Meanwhile, family relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives by providing us with a sense of belonging, love, and support.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant is joined by Marie Stella, a student who was born and raised in Singapore for 20 years. Coming from a rather traditionalist household, she often found excuses to avoid social interaction with her family, whether it be skipping family events or locking herself in her room. However, after living alone for four years, she began to appreciate family time more. Quoting from a Roman Poet, Sextus, “absence does make the heart grow fonder”.
They started this episode with an icebreaker activity, where Marie shared her favorite movie, Coraline, and how she relates to the main character's desire for a different life. She described her parents differently: her dad was the strict one, while her mom was more nurturing and caring. Marie also shared challenges she faced while trying to express their opinions to their traditional Asian parents, and how their relationships with their parents are a lot better now than it was when they were younger. Here, Marie emphasized how distance from her parents has helped her maintain a positive relationship with them.

While a nuclear family (parents and children) is typically the most emphasized in most family talks, extended family can actually play a significant role in shaping a person's identity, values, and beliefs too. That’s why maintaining healthy relationships with extended family members is important to provide a proper sense of support and belonging. However, extended family relationships can be challenging to navigate as they can have different perspectives, experiences, and values in a family.
In this episode of All Together, host Dina Sargeant was joined by Dr. Marissa Holst, an assistant professor of Psychology and Human Services at the University of Minnesota-Morris. She received a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and an M.S./Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies from Iowa State University. At UM-Morris, she teaches courses on human development and family studies. Her research focuses primarily on family relationships and well-being. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, watercolor painting, being outdoors, and spending time with her family.
Dr. Holst addressed the challenges of navigating and maintaining relationships within extended families, which can be complicated due to various factors, and mentioned the impact of sandwich generation as one of the challenges. She also emphasized the importance of building healthy relationships with extended family members and offered some best practices to do it, and the importance of setting boundaries within a family, particularly with extended family members.
