Item description for Broken Children, Grown-Up Pain: Understanding the Effects of Your Wounded Past by Paul Hegstrom...

Overview
Despair. Emotional isolation. Self-loathing. Immaturity. Abusive actions.

These are just some of the damaging fragments that remain embedded within our personalities, behaviors, and souls when we are broken as children. The memory of the past may seem distant and clouded, but within its scars deep wounds remain that continue to inflict pain upon our adult lives--and often end up spilling into the lives of others.

In Broken Children, Grown-Up Pain, Paul Hegstrom, author of Angry Men and the Women Who Love Them, shows us the scars from his broken childhood and shares practical and proven methods for facing and dealing with the pain of the past. By using scientific research, psychological studies, and biblical principles--especially those found in the Jewish model of raising children--he points us to the place of healing where we are finally free to pursue authentic relationships and build healthy emotional intimacy with others.

This updated version of Broken Children, Grown-Up Pain is an excellent resource for pastors, teachers, counselors, psychologists, parents, or anyone wounded by an abusive past.

Reviews - What do customers think about Broken Children Grown Up Pain?

Good Gondition and Service  Mar 25, 2006
Book received in good condition and delivery was received in a timely manner

This book provides an excellent complement to Paul's previous book on domestic violence. "Broken Children", reaches deeper into the hearts and minds of those who abuse and the people who find themselves living with abusers. Victims can identify with the helper and rescuer discussions and find motivation for change. Abusers can discover the root of their problems and address the shame vs. guilt thinking that motivates their behavior.

This is another wonderful effort by Dr. Paul Hegstrom that gives answers to some of life's toughest problems.
 
For Evangelicals Only  Nov 24, 2004
This is a truly terrible book that I'm very sorry I purchased. Not only is the advice weak (and vastly different from other excellent books on this topic), but it is entirely phrased from an evangelical Christian perspective. What our "Creator" wants us to do is repeated every couple of paragraphs. As you can imagine, our "Creator" pretty much wants us to forget the abuse ever happened, and joyfully commune with God's plan. I feel that I was misled in purchasing this book, because it is portrayed as another useful self-help book, and the underlying evangelical message is not mentioned in the reviews. Although you may like this book if you are a fundamentalist, unfortunately, from a psychological perspective, the advice is very very poor. If you are not a born again Christian who believes all we need to do is pray, you will not be helped at all by this book. I'd like my money back.
 
Help for people with troubled pasts  Oct 31, 2001
This book proved helpful to me as I search for answers to how to overcome an abusive marriage that harmed my children. It helps to explain why just wanting to be different than your parents isn't always easy.
