|Considerations for the Week
1. Am I able to identify characteristics of this role within myself or other members of my family?
2. Will I consider that doing things for the substance abuser in the family system is not really about taking care of them, but potentially about avoiding my own fears or attempting to self soothe my guilt and shame?
3. How can I encourage the Caretaker in my family system and help them to find support of their own?
