John Bradshaw's legendary work on family dynamics has touched millions of lives with a message of hope and resolution for families today. In this groundbreaking lecture, world famous spiritual Guru, and New York Times best-selling author, John Bradshaw, utilizes intensive recent family research to show how families have changed over the years in response to economic circumstances, how social systems become dysfunctional, and what makes healthy functional families. John counsels listeners to honor each family member for his or her own unique contributions to the family relationship and extends the idea of a global family, showing how the information revolution can bring new life to families. Focusing on how family rules and attitudes become encoded within each family member, then acted out within the family and society as a whole, John presents compelling evidence that healing emotional wounds in the family can affect and heal the world in which we live.

This popular monk-turned-lecturer has released this new tape to follow his successful PBS television series. Before a live audience, the author discusses topics of recovery, such as family-of-origin issues and recovering one's inner child. In a delightful Southern twang Bradshaw peppers this sometimes somber topic with satirical humor. He also discusses spiritual topics (occasionally becoming preachy). The only thing that detracts from this lively performance is the abrupt endings of the tapes, which call for smooth transitions from topic to topic. A.G.H.

It has been nearly a decade since Bradshaw published such seminal self-help works as Homecoming: Reclaiming Your Inner Child (Bantam, 1990) and The Family: A Revolutionary Way of Self Discovery (Health Communications, 1988). His original evangelical enthusiasm for recovery topics has subsided, he confesses, and he has turned to recent family research and recovery materials to explore the individual in both a family and societal setting. Here, Bradshaw concentrates on developing goodness and character. He uses historical examples in demonstrating that the family has never offered a stable environment and in fact has survived simply because of our belief in the ultimate goodness of the family model. He counsels listeners to honor each family member for his or her unique contributions, extends his idea of a global family, and contends that healing the emotional wounds of the family can affect and heal the world.
