9780393308044: Recreating Your Self

"This compelling and considerate guide very gently yet powerfully shows the adult child how to develop a strong and solid sense of self."―Emily J. Marlin, C.S.W.

For people who were emotionally and physically wounded as children, the journey from childhood to adulthood is a constant struggle with shame, self-criticism, and fear. This book shows these adult children of dysfunctional families how to use self-hypnosis to resolve the effects of abuse, to build a healing relationship with the child within and an inspiring one with the future self, and to give back "hand-me-downs" that are causing pain. The author's stories and hypnotic strategies emphasize self-acceptance, healing old wounds, and getting on with life. Explicit exercises and self-hypnotic scripts, clearly explained and set within a framework that enables readers to make sense of their experiences, give people the tools they need to create a resilient, healthy self.
