by John Bradshaw
In an emotionally revealing way, John Bradshaw shows us how toxic shame is the core problem in our compulsions, codependencies, addictions and the drive to superachieve, resulting in the breakdown of the family system and in our inability to go forward with our lives. We are bound, Bradshaw tells us, by our shame. But drawing from his 22 years of experience as a counselor, he offers us the techniques to heal our shame. Using affirmations, visualizations, “inner voice” and “feeling” work, plus guided meditations and other useful healing techniques, he releases the shame that binds us to our past.
This important book breaks new ground in the core issues of societal and personal breakdown, offering new techniques of recovery vital to all of us.
