0 Reviews
This text provides a step-by-step healing process for adults reared in dysfunctional families and who have unfinished business with their pasts. This process encourages individuals to tell the truth about abuse and neglect, embrace and feel the feelings, identify how present-day acting-out behaviour is related to inner dialogue, and apply the inner child method to adulthood issues.
