Figuring out Families Podcast

It’s in the family we learn the skills of living together. We first  learn that we are loved, understood, wanted and cared for, and in most cases it’s in the family we are formed to be who we are. However  our biggest hurts, failures and tragedies can also occur within the family. 

For over 70 years Majellan has provided advice, shared stories of family life and helped family members deal with the problems that arise. We’ve helped thousands with their family issues.

Hosted by David Ahern.

Together we’ll set about Figuring out Families.
