(from back cover)
Based on the television series of the same name, John Bradshaw focuses on the dynamics of the family, how the rules and attitudes learned while growing up become encoded within each family member. As 96% of all families are to some degree emotionally impared, the unhealthy rules we are now living by are handed down from one generation to another and ultimately to society at large. Our society is sick because our families are sick. And our families are sick because we are living by inherited rules we never wrote.
John Bradshaw, through this positive life-affirming book, guides us out of our dysfunction to wholeness and teaches us that bad beginnings can be remedied. Families can be healed as we as individuals can be healed. And when we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
