In Every Bad, There's Some Good─And A Lesson to Be Learned

Twenty-four survivors recount their stories of living in a dysfunctional family. It isn't always easy. You can't choose your situation or where you come from, but you can choose the lessons you take away.

Is there a silver lining to growing up in a dysfunctional family? Bestselling recovery author Karen Casey looks at stories of people who grew up in dysfunctional families and the good stuff that can come from the experience. Throughout my many decades in recovery rooms I have interacted with thousands of women and men whose journeys reveal, in detail, the harrowing history of dysfunction that has troubled their lives, says Casey. But what is also apparent in their stories is their eventual and quite triumphant survival, often against extreme odds.

From 24 families rife with dysfunction. Casey interviews the survivors who emerged from the fires of a turbulent household to willingly share their stories and come to realize they had, surprisingly, thrived as the result of their often-harrowing experiences. In The Good Stuff from Growing Up in a Dysfunctional Family, Casey reveals the stories and the skills these survivors developed to live more creative and fulfilling lives.

In this book find tales that help you to:

  • Realize lessons in disguise
  • Acknowledge your personal growth
  • Point out your own silver lining

If you enjoyed books like Daring Greatly, Codependent No More, or Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, then you'll want to read Good Stuff from Growing Up in a Dysfunctional Family.
