The Emotional Incest Syndrome
I recently read this book, The Emotional Incest Syndrome, by Dr Patricia Love, which I have found immensely helpful for understanding myself, my family, and my relationships.
If you're looking to delve into your emotions and your history, as a way to access and heal your past pain, this book may be helpful to you.
Here is the book description:
"From Dr. Patricia Love, a ground-breaking work that identifies, explores and treats the harmful effects that emotionally and psychologically invasive parents have on their children, and provides a program for overcoming the chronic problems that can result."
I wouldn't say that agree with all of Dr Love's suggestions as to how to resolve the issues, which often involve taking actions rather than feeling through our emotions. I believe that the only way to heal is to release our painful emotions by feeling them.
