Many women grow up, leave home and begin their own families and careers without ever leaving home psychologically. Experiencing depression, dependent relationships or unhealthy behaviour patterns these women are controlled by the formidable, sometimes crippling ties that bind them to their pasts. For the millions raised in dysfunctional families, working on "growing up" is essential to a happy, healthy adult living. Through dramatic stories and inspiring examples the author differentiates between life-enhancing and life-defeating family patterns. This book provides a viable model of success by showing women how to meet the six challenges of personal change: leaving home, facing shame, forging an identity, integrating sexuality, claiming personal power and tapping into the creative spirit. She details the basic steps for healthy development and reveals the rich rewards of understanding and confronting our histories.
