Format: Paperback
I thought overall that the book was very good at helping me recognize the roots to the problems in my adult life. As a sexual abuse survivor, it has opened the doors to the little child inside of me that needs to feel safe and loved. It was very easy to read and easy to understand. The only negative thing I would have to say about the book is that it was very thorough on addressing the roots of problems, but not necessarily on what you can do now to overcome them. (But I suppose that's another story......)

After many other books on inner child work have come and gone, I keep coming back to this one. The author has given what is arguably the most complete map of the inner child work that has ever been written. To have instructions like this, that take us gently into our own inner mythology is a rare gift. If God/Goddess had commissioned an instruction manual for how to navigate these inner territories, it would have been this one. Come to think of it, maybe that's what happened! For anyone interested in doing really solid inner child work, this book is one they must read and DO! There's the potential for so much healing, and ultimately inner peace in this book!

There's a difference of talking of what your traumas (no matter how significant)are, and actually releasing the feelings and energies that accompany them. If you're really ready to get your life going and become a whole person, this book will do it. Once you've looked at the inner feelings and dealt with them, you're on your way to whatever you want of yourself. Talk about opening doors. You're worth it.

This is a thorough book. You must be willing to recover very badly to start this journey, because it takes a lot of courage to explore yourself this way. It is written in a friendly, positive style. The writer seems to know exactely what she is talking about. I learned so much about myself from this book!

I did not find this book to be a helpful resource for my clients who have had difficult or painful childhood experiences. In many cases the exercises in this book require a greater degree of affect tolerance than the client has at her disposal. The consequence for the reader using this strictly as a self-help book,easily could be emotional overwhelm, and reinforcement of poor self-esteem as the reader continues to wonder what is wrong with her; this time because she cannot accomplish the tasks outlined in this workbook.

I really enjoyed this book, I found it thorough and empathic. The reader is lead through the many stages of childhood with compassion and given helpful exercises to overcome issues and obstacles present at each stage. The ability to understand the child is well presented by the author. As with psychotherapy generally it is more helpful to work with a therapist, this book is a great beginner or would work well alongside psychotherapy sessions.

Opening the pages of this book marked the start of a journey towards self-discovery. I diligently did the exercises as they were presented in the book and made time every day to do the work it asked for. I found the checklists to be simple and quick to do, but very insightful. Many of the characteristics and behavior patterns listed were ones that I engage in. One of the most intense exercises in this book was "Step Five: Grieving Your Infant Self's Pain." I had no idea my inner infant was in so much pain until I gave her permission to express it in a safe way. This pain came out as rage expressed through pounding and yelling, and doing art work as suggested in the exercise. It was very intense and very exhausting. When I was done, I burned the pages as the author suggests. What a wonderful and renewing experience. I did the same work for the grade-school child and inner teen and it was equally difficult, but rewarding. Reading this book and doing the work within it's pages has put me in touch with my inner child and my inner teen and has helped me discover my true self. Doing this work has changed my life for the better. Thank you, Cathryn Taylor for providing this setting and script for wonderful self-healing. I am grateful.
