Dated, so take some things with a grain of salt.

Recommended, with some caveats, by my therapist. Feels a little hokey, but in my third reading of this one in 7 years, I have come to see the value in the way that Bradshaw talks about and structures integration of a traumatic childhood.

Queer people, be aware: this was written in 1990, and published in 1992.

There is for sure some clinicalization of homosexuality that may not feel good. I recommend skipping past those references, but it may be too difficult for you to do so comfortably, and that's okay. <3
