This is the psychologist, Charles Whitfield's, classic book on healing your "Inner child". He explains in detail about the inner child that lives inside of you as an adult and a method of reaching it and healing it. This self help book is insightful and practical. See Wikipedia under "Inner Child" for more information on this subject.

Very thorough. It summarizes much of the literature on healing from effects of dysfunctional families.

I found this book very useful in my own healing, but I was also already familiar with the topic. I think this book may be a little overwhelming and too terse for people who are just starting to heal themselves.

I would suggest that for those who are new to recovery and/or self-healing, this book is best read in conjunction with seeing a therapist.

Excellent book. It's a book that really gets down to the core issues and challenges your thinking in many ways. I highly recommend it.
