Overview

Are you outwardly successful but inwardly do you feel like a big kid? Do you aspire to be a loving parent but all too often “lose it” in hurtful ways? Do you crave intimacy but sometimes wonder if it’s worth the struggle? Or are you plagued by constant vague feelings of anxiety or depression?

If any of this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the hidden but damaging effects of a painful childhood—carrying within you a “wounded inner child” that is crying out for attention and healing.

In this powerful book, John Bradshaw shows how we can learn to nurture that inner child, in essence offering ourselves the good parenting we needed and longed for. Through a step-by-step process of exploring the unfinished business of each developmental stage, we can break away from destructive family rules and roles and free ourselves to live responsibly in the present. Then, says Bradshaw, the healed inner child becomes a source of vitality, enabling us to find new joy and energy in living.

Homecoming
includes a wealth of unique case histories and interactive techniques, including questionnaires, letter-writing to the inner child, guided meditations, and affirmations. Pioneering when introduced, these classic therapies are now being validated by new discoveries in attachment research and neuroscience. No one has ever brought them to a popular audience more effectively and inspiringly than John Bradshaw.

Bradshaw's Homecoming re-creates the transformative experiences of his workshops, in which participants learn to understand and mourn the damage done to their inner child--the core self with which we are born and which is damaged and hidden when the growing child adapts to life in a dysfunctional family. A #1 national bestseller, now in trade paperback. Illustrated.

    End the bondage...

    John Bradshaw does outstanding work with the Inner Child. This book is truly enlightening, truth revealing, and challenges us at our most intimate level. It has helped me function healthily as a human being. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

    The Eye Opener

    If you're not mature and ready for the truth, then this book is not for you. On the other hand I find this book to be rather helpful. It helped me to understand more about my feelings/emotions and reactions sometimes to extreme and simple things. I also understood why we may act or think or react the way we do to others; whom may have no understanding of how their actions affected the other person wither positively or negatively, and sometimes it's not even a person that affects you. I recommend this book to everybody. I think there are answers to many things, and it's a step to a new start.

    How to deal with narcissistic deprivation

    Growing up I was robbed of having a mother and didn't ever have my needs met from a mother. For that, I have most of my life looked and longed for a maternal figure in my life to meet those needs that I had as a child and still have. Because of this I have always felt that there is something wrong with me. I am still searching to be mothered by a maternal figure and John Bradshaw's book was a lot of help. I am still looking for ways to help me meet these needs from a mother that a child would have. Even if they are needs that I small child or even a baby would have.
