Item description for Emotional Transformation by Anne Hovell Dew...
Overview As a committed Christian and licensed psychotherapist, Anne Dew has assembled a process that defines the emotional issues that keep a person from reaching personal and spiritual wholeness. Awareness is developed with a family systems approach. The basic premises are: "All issues are in the family of origin," "All relationships are family reunions," and "We marry in order to work out our family-of-origin issues."The burden of proof is then presented through paper and pen work, using a genogram (similar to a genealogy chart) to graphically display the generational emotional issues. Helping the reader to become aware is the substance of the first half of the book, which is presented for the secular reader. The second half of the twelve chapters presents suggested Christian spiritual solutions to these issues that keep people stuck and reenacting. As a result of putting these different approaches together, the author has seen emotional transformation at a deep level.

Great if you live in the Bible Belt Nov 11, 2008
There is some interesting info in the first pages, but then it goes way off the deep end with all the religious conservative nonsense. Satan, Halloween, covens, secular humanists, and on and on. I'm sure she voted for McCain. My sister might like this book, but for me it was a waste of money.
This book is a must read for those seeking emotional healing! Nov 17, 2005
Emotional Transformation is a wonderful book that marries the basics of spiritual inner healing principles as taught by the founders of Elijah House, John and Paula Sandford, with the understanding of human behavioral issues. The book takes the reader on a journey starting with the recognition of their own issues, working back through the past looking for the roots of those issues and then applying forgiveness and repentance to accomplish the healing needed in the heart. Anne has stayed true to the biblical truths of the spiritual laws that are taught at Elijah House, while teaching her reader how to appropriate the work of healing prayer in their own hearts. Although this is not a substitute for personal prayer ministry, the workbook format allows the reader to understand how God works to heal and restore His wounded children and learn ways to identify and pray through bitter root judgments and inner vows. It teaches in a simple step by step manner, how a person can look for the spiritual root causes of the "bad fruit" they experience in their lives and use that revelation to pray for healing. Anne addresses issues that are relevant to our society today, including eating disorders, family relationships, illegitimacy, adoption and control, all the while, directing the reader back to the Lord Jesus as their healer. She uses examples that are easily understood and relevant to society today.
I enjoyed Emotional Transformation and appreciated the ease with which Anne was able to address the prayer ministry process as well as teach the readers to hear their own heart. I recommend this book to people who are looking for healing in their lives; and to other prayer ministers as a good tool to familiarize people with this kind of work.
This book will start you on a journey of healing that has at its end, a closer walk with your Heavenly Father and healthier relationships with friends and family. If you let the Lord heal the wounds in your heart through the gifts of forgiveness and repentance, you will indeed be transformed by His grace and His love.
It happened to me. May 5, 2004
Words can not express the impact this teaching has had on me. I spent 11 years in counseling with no clear answers only knowing, "all my issues." I had no real healing only feelings of inadequacy. This teaching has transformed my life and strengthened my faith. Anne Hovell Dew has brought together a model for healing and transformation that works. It is not a matter of knowing our issues but having the healing power of our Lord into the circumstances and situations for healing and transformation. I will be forever grateful and pray that God will continue to bless you and annoint Anne for his service.

Anne Dew's remarkable book owes some allegiance to the work of John Bradshaw, who is generously credited in "Emotional Transformation." Before Bradshaw, W. Hugh Missildine, MD, was, arguably, the first mental health professional to connect child-developed influences to adult behavior. Missildine, a practicing psychiatrist before becoming a professor at the Ohio State University College of Medicine, also referenced religion, and did so years before Bradshaw and Dew.
In "Your Inner Child of the Past," Missildine's seminal 1963 work, for example, he referenced St. Paul: `"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things."' Missildine's translation: "While you can make a serious and sincere effort to be responsible and mature, you cannot manage the feelings and actions of your `child of the past' by putting them away. They are part of you and must be accepted before you can give your attention to your mature goals."
All of this leads to Anne Dew, who has added considerably to the works of Missildine and Bradshaw, in effect, extending and opening the earlier concepts. Chock-a-block full of examples, "Emotional Transformation" is a great read.
Dew has mastered the genogram, and ties its provocative family-of-origin mapping-a charted way of discovering the why of one's self, all the way down to the inner child-and to the resulting problems and reactivity of adulthood. You may not feel that you have such difficulties, but Dew's book will make you a believer, and, in its pages, you will almost discover self truths.
. While the book is Christian-centered, Dew offers enough in the way of insights and general information to satisfy any curious and intelligent intellect, Christian or not. If you want to discover some of your own truths, Emotional Transformation is where to begin.

Trying to describe Anne Dew's new book "Emotional Transformation" is a pleasure. "Emotional Transformation" is a true contribution to the literature of emotional and spiritual healing. Anne combines an excellent knowledge of family systems theory with well-defined concepts of spiritual healing.
All are presented in a lucid, easy to read style that leads the reader through steps which can tease out and bring to light unhealed areas of early conflict and its effect on present day functioning in every aspect of life. Anne then reveals application techniques to the believer, which take Christ's promises of healing and make them real.
As one who is both a practitioner, and a recipient of God's healing light through Anne, I can attest to the fact that the system works and that all Anne writes here is true. It is laid out for the prepared reader in manual form leading to much deepened understanding and facilitating a Christ-centered, Christ-empowered way of healing in anyone who is ready and willing to hear.
The writer is an experienced, well-trained psychotherapist in her own right and her training in the theories of man and the power of Christ are evident throughout the book. To anyone who wishes to embark on a faith-based journey into the use of Christ's promised power, "All I have done you can do and more," the book is a clear, lucid compendium on healing emotional pain.
