Bradshaw On Healing Your Inner Child

Many adult children of alcoholics/ dysfunctional families learned to deny and block painful feelings as a means of survival. But those feelings don't just go away. They continue to affect us as adults and influence our behavior, health, success and ability to be happy. Symptoms may include depression, anger, addictions and pain.

"America's leading growth expert", John Bradshaw, explains how childhood abuse and neglect can have a lasting affect. He also performs interactive healing exercises for tapping into and expressing core feelings as a road to emotional freedom.

Thought his was recorded a while ago it is still powerful and insightful!

Wow how times have changed in this area. I still react over change- especially to family. I just had my first grandchild and feelings of shame and doubt popped up. Why? I think (here I am analyzing me?!) my child still feels the pain of a childhood which was empty and confusing and even seeing pictures of that grandchild's vulnerability reminds me of mine. Make sense? --Anyway times have changed- less people seem to connect the dots. But I am grateful I can see the connections and know that hey its time for me to nurture that child in me so I can be there for my children and grandchildren- but I will tell ya one doesnt happen without the other for me.

Thanks for sharing. Can definitely relate to nurturing my own child leading to extending that same behavior out with others.
