Tonight's special guest is Thomas Gagliano from North Brunswick, New Jersey. Tom specializes in working with parents relating to childhood messages and how one’s experience shapes their world view. He discusses challenging issues from his vast professional background while interweaving his own experiences to crystallize concepts. He's the co-author of the book 'The Problem Was Me' with Dr. Abraham Twerski. He presented the topic at the SCRIPT Conference - Talking to Kids about Tough Stuff: the 7 Essential Areas of Parenting. Tom is a sought-after expert and speaker and has appeared on many television and radio shows. He also hosts weekly Instagram shows, @theproblemwasme, and has produced several educational podcasts that can be found on iTunes. Tom has provided trainings at many universities and community-based organizations regarding parenting and family dynamic problems. A single negative message in our childhood can carry a lifetime sentence. Unfortunately, many people experienced barrage after barrage of negative messages while growing up. These messages can morph into what author he calls, "The warden, an oppressive bully who sat on my shoulder for years." His book inspires readers to silence this inner voice of self-doubt and fear and begin living proactive, satisfying lives. With candor and humility, the authors show readers how to work an honest recovery program and break the cycle of negative thinking and addictive acting out. “My experience and expertise come from overcoming my own abuse as a child. That experience and insight is what has guided the methodology I use to helped many men, couples, and families find peace and serenity in their lives.”
