Summary Dr. Whitfield in Healing The Child Within describes the journey of discovery and healing our fears, confusion and unhappiness. This book begins where many others describing adult children of alcoholics have left off. It also describes and develops the concept of adult children of trouble or dysfunctional families in general, rather than focusing only on the alcoholic family.
Members of Twelve-step Self-help groups and Adult Children Self-help groups will find this book especially useful in their own recovery work, both within and outside of their meetings ...
Subject Codependency -- Treatment.
