Common Ground: The Podcast

Common Ground Podcast LogoParenting support and advice from some of the nation’s thought leaders. Every episode is focused on addressing a specific challenge for a family and providing tips and tools to overcome and build a stronger family unit.

The Trails Carolina team has several decades of collective clinical experience working with teens and families. By leveraging this expertise and compassionate care, they create an environment that fosters growth. This individual work with families drove the podcast’s main idea: How can we better support parents struggling with challenging or difficult situations with their children?

By bringing together Trails Carolina staff members along with other experts from the field, our goal with Common Ground is to give context and a more nuanced understanding of the issues parents face and how to best tackle them together.
