Inner Child

I got this recommended by a friend who had been on a healing week for abused children in Australia. This book reinforces what I learnt on that week. I recommend it to anyone who is wanting and needing help to overcome inner child issues.

Terrific material to help recover that which was lost.

I've done a lot of Inner Child work and this ranks among the best of the literature I've used. Highly recommended to anyone. We ALL have some kind of inner child wounding...even if we were "overloved!".... Great exercises. A useful tool for healing.

Great resource for the discovery of your inner child!

This is one of the best books I've read on how to discover your inner child. It has many excercises to use to "talk" to your inner child. It showed me how to have a first hand experience with my inner child...and to actually feel the emotions. By writting and drawing with my non-dominant hand, I could actually have conversations with my inner child. I learned a lot about who my inner child was, the way she was feeling and how to make her feel happier and safer! The book stirs up many emotions that were buried for years, thus, helping me become healthier! One of the best self-help tools I have ever used!!

Art Therapy, Inner Child, Internalized Parent...

This book has Art Therapy exercises and dialog exercises with your inner child (who can be playful, vulnerable, angry, etc). For instance you might be instructed to ask your inner child a question by writing it with your dominant hand. Then you answer the question with your nondominant hand (e.g. for many of us our left hand that we don't usually write with). There are also exercises that involve your internalized Parent (nuruturing, protective, critical, etc.)The exercises seem to be a blend of Art Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Gestault Experiments. As such the exercises can be somewhat risky since they bring up intense feelings. I wouldn't use some of these except under a therapist's supervision. However, this book seem VERY useful for adding to the tools of a practicing therapist.

Wonderful for the layperson

If you are trying to find out where to begin your search for your inner child this is a good place to start. There are a number of excercises written in plain english that you can do alone, or share with your therapist.
