When therapist and relationship expert Nedra Glover Tawwab exploded onto the media scene in 2021 with her book, Set Boundaries, Find Peace, it became an instant New York Times bestseller. As 1.5 million Instagram followers clamored for her clinical wisdom, she also became an in-demand guest on shows like Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk and Good Morning America. Believing that most relationship issues can be traced to a lack of assertiveness and strong boundaries, she’s created practical tools to help people—and therapists—form healthy relationships with themselves and others. Her research-based best practices have also been highlighted in popular publications, such as The Guardian and Vice, and on numerous podcasts, including Good Life Project and Therapy for Black Girls.

In this recorded address, Nedra Glover Tawwab will explore the current trend of cutting off family members and labeling people and relationships as “toxic.” She’ll take us deeper into what really lies at the heart of our troubling family dynamics, offering clear advice for identifying dysfunctional family patterns and choosing the best path to break the cycle and move forward.
