9780060977207: The Transcendent Child: Tales of Triumph Over the Past

How is it that some people can transcend even the most harsh and painful past? For the answer, Dr. Rubin turns to the life stories of adults who were scarred by the worst kinds of family and social pathologies as children yet found the strength to endure and live rich and satisfying adult lives. Through their life stories, she provides new insight into human development and shows readers how they too can overcome their own personal trauma.

A vivid reminder that people don't have to be live as hostages to their past, The Transcendent Child is a truly timely and important book for the thousands of Americans who are fed up with living their lives as victims.
