Overview

Held hostage by anger, guilt, and denial, survivors of child abuse will find in Free from Lies the tools necessary to break the destructive cycle. Using explanations about what we can expect from therapy, how we can identify the causes of our own pain, and why unconscious pain, unaddressed for decades, later manifests itself as depression, self-mutilation, and chronic loneliness, Free from Lies has distinguished itself as an astoundingly moving and perceptive work. Since the landmark publication of The Drama of the Gifted Child, no one has been more influential than Alice Miller in empowering adults whose lives have been maimed emotionally and physically as children. Now, Dr. Miller goes even further, with her responses to readers' letters and powerful stories. Indeed, Free from Lies is the culmination of a life devoted to healing others.

Her message is monumentally important. Her explanation of the derivation of violence and terrorism is as good as any I have ever come across. Evil is not innate but derives from childhood experiences as well as other trauma and abusive humiliation. She is a pioneer...of good!
