9780345363886: Adult Children of Abusive Parents: A Healing Program for Those Who Have Been Physically, Sexually, or Emotionally Abused

A history of a childhood abuse is not a life sentence. Here is hope, healing, and a chance to recover the self lost in childhood. Drawing on his extensive work with Adult Children, and on his own experience as a survivor of emotional neglect, therapist Steven Farmer demonstrates that through exercises and journal work, his program can help lead you through grieving your lost childhood, to become your own parent, and integrate the healing aspects of spiritual, physical, and emotional recovery into your adult life.

Review:

The violent forms of child abuse that make headlines are not the only ones that leave lifelong scars. A child who grows up in an unstable environment where empathy, clear boundaries and trust are lacking, can end up living a ravaged adulthood. Children can be crippled by mixed messages, family secrets and reversed parent-child roles. Many victims of these practices are not even sure their childhood was abusive. This balanced, practical guide delineates traits of abusive families. Narrative vignettes in each section illustrate and personalize critical issues. Most valuable is the step-by-step self-help program that includes exercises and journal work for recovery.

About the Author:

Steven Farmer's books include CORACLE, Tone Ward, WORLD OF SHIELDS, Standing Water, MEDIEVAL, and GLOWBALL. He holds a BA in Writing from UCSD and an MA in English from Sonoma State U, where he studied under poet David Bromige. His work life includes many years as a chef in the restaurant business, and a career shift to the IT industry, where he now manages software development projects and tools supporting professional services risk management. He currently lives 20 miles east of Oakland, CA.
