By John Bradshaw
Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw on: The Family is John Bradshaw’s seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than one million copies since its original publication in 1988. Within its pages, you will discover the causes of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society.
Using the latest family research and recovery material, this new edition also explores the individual in both a family setting and a societal setting. Bradshaw shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps – from addiction and codependency to loss of will and denial – and demonstrates how to make conscious choices to transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you to heal yourself and, then, using what you have learned, helps you heal your family.
