Premise - psychological qwoundingq is epidemic in America because of an unseen inherited cycle of ineffective parenting and ignorance. This book describes the wounds, what they mean, and what to do about them. This fourth edition (Feb. 2011) will introduce you to your inner family, and who leads it in calm and crisis times. If you dona€™t know who comprises your inner crew or whoa€™s in charge of them, you may be living life as a hostage to a false self and not know it. If so, youa€™re probably living well below your potential, and may also be wounding kids in your life without meaning to. The rest of the book outlines an effective way to reduce any significant wounds, and live a calmer, more authentic, productive, satisfying life. Notice your reaction to these proposals and to the book Is title. I suspect you think a€œWell I am running my life!a€ Sure - but have you ever thought about who a€œIa€ is? Reality check: Have you ever had experiences like these? a€c Blowing hot and cold about someone or something? a€c Saying a€œOn one hand, ... and on the other...a€? a€c Obsessively second-guessing (doubting) an important decision youa€™ve made? a€c Having a€œdiscussionsa€ or qargumentsq with yourself inside your head? a€c An a€œinner voicea€ ceaselessly berating you for being stupid, dumb, weird, or unlovable? a€c Loved and hated someone at the same time? a€c Wanted to do something and simultaneously not wanted to do it? a€c Done something impulsive and later thought a€œWhat got into me?a€ a€c Known people who seemed two-faced, talked out of both sides of their mouth, and a€œlike two different peoplea€? a€c Felt a€œyounga€ when around an authority figure or perhaps a critical parent? yellow or mean streak, a blue mood a musical side, a silver tongue, or a way with kids? These are everyday signs of an invisible condition that shapes the lives of you and everyone you know. Ita€™s based on a marvelous survival feature of our human neural system recently called multiplicity: our braina€™s wired-in ability to respond to childhood environmental threat by fragmenting into regions with special abilities. Using radiographic PET scans, wea€™re the first generation in history to be able to see these regions operating concurrently. The unitary experience of a€œI see my child laugha€ involves many regions of your brain at once without your knowing it. So does everything you do! Main Ideas This book results from my professionally studying and practicing inner family therapy (qparts workq) since 1992. It describes what Ia€™ve come to believe without question about average women and men like you: Normal people have personalities that are composed of a group of subselves or parts, like members of an orchestra or athletic team. Each subself has ita€™s own talent or gift, ita€™s own values, goals, and limitations. Our inner families of subselves can range from harmonious to chaotic in calm and crisis times. The nature of our subselves and the relationships among them are determined in the first several years of life of average kids. If kids areThis book describes the wounds, what they mean, and what to do about them. This fourth edition (Feb. 2011) will introduce you to your inner family, and who leads it in calm and crisis times.
