From the Inside Flap
Read by the Author
From the bestselling author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind: an accessible guide to healing the destructive effects of guilt.
The reaction by parents, teachers and peers to our own actions often determines our sense of self - how confident we feel and how secure we are about our place in the world. When self-blame and pessimism begin to overtake self-esteem and optimism, the rest may be emotional, physical and spiritual distress.
In Guilt is the Teacher, Love is the Answer, Dr. Joan Borysenko, a Harvard Ph.D., explores this mind/body connection as she offers personal and professional advice for journeying toward recovery and self-love.
Here at last is an insightful and uplifting approach for turning the teachings of guilt into the lessons of love. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

This book is rich in different forms of psychology, both past and present, but it also mixes the spiritual with that psychology. I think, with most psychologists, that is the factor that is missing. There's the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. Too often, doctors leave the latter out of their practice, and I believe, as Joan Borysenko illustrates, it is a mistake.
This is not just merely a self-help book, but a book that gives you a lot of detail and insight on unhealthy guilt. The aurthor uses examples from her own life, as well as from some of the people she has come across in her practice, to give the reader further understanding. There's exercises for the reader to try, as well as meditations.
If you've EVER suffered from obsessive, unhealty guilt and low self-esteem, this book is MUST.
From my experience Joan Borysenko may be the premier authority in integrating these subjects. She draws on experts from many fields along with her own experience and research and is able to present her conclusions and recommendations in an easy to understand format.
I couldn't recommend this book more highly.
