Home For The Holidays - Handling Family Dynamics
GUEST:David Peters, Family therapist with offices in Mission Valley

Families sometimes have to confront traumatic events when they gather for the holidays, but family gatherings can also create trauma on their own.

Mixed in with the loving feelings we have for our folks, there are old resentments, unresolved conflicts and those old standbys -- politics and religion -- that can cause big problems.

David Peters, a family therapist with offices in Mission Valley, offers simple tips to help you navigate family dynamics throughout the year.
