A collection of 37 articles that promises to reconnect the reader with his/her inner child. The book starts with describing the archetype of the inner child. The book then goes on to describe problems with the inner child. The finally the book offers suggestions with getting in touch with your own inner child.

I found 'Reclaiming the Inner Child' when I was myself working with Inner Child Recovery and Healing. Next to Stone & Stone’s 'Embracing Our Selves', the present book was an important inspiration for drafting my own approach on healing the inner child.

This reader is well edited and presented; each contribution is essential and brings a new insight and perspective for awakening the inner child. Jeremiah Abrams wrote once in a presentation of the book that inner child recovery is a religious quest. I can fully subscribe to this statement, as it’s in accordance with the oldest of traditions.

In fact, the Hermetic Tradition was teaching the dialogue with our inner selves as a path to self-knowledge, and unfortunately this is today forgotten in our rushy and outwardly prosperous culture. Inwardly, most of us are impoverished on the level of soul which is why we have such a high level of depression and resulting emotional disorders in our modern international culture.

Let me tell you upfront that this book is not about psychiatry. You do not need any psychological knowledge for reading it, and applying its wisdom in your own life. Most contributions, and to mention here especially those of Jeremiah Abrams, Gaston Bachelard, Joseph Campbell and John Loudon expand on the poetic and mythological dimension of a healed and functional inner child.

But even those other contributions, written from the pulpit of psychiatric professionals, to mention only John Bradshaw, Nathaniel Branden, James Hillman, Robert M. Stein or Hal and Sidra Stone, do not present inner child healing as a discipline that is strictly speaking to be placed within the closed space of psychiatric hospitals or the coach of the psychoanalyst.

This collection of "essays" on the Inner Child is an amazing means to get a clearer picture of the child & how it manifests in our lives.....we can get clues from these essays to how the child shows up in our lives. I wanted this book because I realized I truly did not have a clue of how to do inner child work, because I really did not know what it all meant......I'm closer to having a clearer understanding now....but my search for info along these lines continues (for my own reasons, not because this book failed me).
