Are you outwardly successful but inwardly do you feel like a big kid? Do you aspire to be a loving parent but all too often “lose it” in hurtful ways? Do you crave intimacy but sometimes wonder if it’s worth the struggle? Or are you plagued by constant vague feelings of anxiety or depression? If any of this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the hidden but damaging effects of a painful childhood—carrying within you a “wounded inner child” that is crying out for attention and healing. In this powerful book, John Bradshaw shows how we can learn to nurture that inner child, in essence offering ourselves the good parenting we needed and longed for. Through a step-by-step process of exploring the unfinished business of each developmental stage, we can break away from destructive family rules and roles and free ourselves to live responsibly in the present. Then, says Bradshaw, the healed inner child becomes a source of vitality, enabling us to find new joy and energy in living. Homecoming includes a wealth of unique case histories and interactive techniques, including questionnaires, letter-writing to the inner child, guided meditations, and affirmations. Pioneering when introduced, these classic therapies are now being validated by new discoveries in attachment research and neuroscience. No one has ever brought them to a popular audience more effectively and inspiringly than John Bradshaw.

Based on the public television series of the same name, Bradshaw On: The Family is John Bradshaw's seminal work on the dynamics of families that has sold more than a million copies since its original publication in 1988. Within its pages, you will discover the cause of emotionally impaired families. You will learn how unhealthy rules of behavior are passed down from parents to children, and the destructive effect this process has on our society. Using the latest family research and recovery material in this new edition, Bradshaw also explores the individual in both a family and societal setting. He shows you ways to escape the tyranny of family-reinforced behavior traps--from addiction and co-dependency to loss of will and denial--and demonstrates how to make conscious choices that will transform your life and the lives of your loved ones. He helps you heal yourself and then, using what you have learned helps you heal your family. Finally, Bradshaw extends this idea to our society: by returning yourself and your family to emotional health, you can heal the world in which you live. He helps you reenvision societal conflicts from the perspective of a global family, and shares with you the power of deep democracy: how the choices you make every day can affect--and improve--your world.

The book is a self-help book to help victims of abuse or misfortune find their way out of the maze of disempowering beliefs that are accumulated as a result of the abuse or misfortune. Specifically, it is a guide to assist in reprogramming those negative beliefs. It also includes my own story of surviving various abuses and how I overcame the negative effects of these abuses: satanic abuse as a toddler; sexual, physical, and emotional abuse throughout my childhood/adolescence; intermittent rapes and suicidal tendencies; "battered wife's syndrome" as an adult; a severe auto accident in 1997; self-destructive habits acquired along life's path, and the resulting various abusive relationships engaged in because of the negative perceptions I gleaned and believed about myself. The main message is that we can regenerate ourselves, however we wish to do so after abuse and misfortune, through God's daily guidance, because each of us retains the ultimate power to do that, no matter what lies about ourselves that the perpetrators or seemingly unfortunate mishaps have planted into our minds. A loving, all-powerful God created us and we can use our God-given "free will" to REPROGRAM our own minds to accept the truth about ourselves: that we are amazing, wondrous, beautiful people, not because anything we have done or anything we can do in the future, but simply because God made us that way. We are good!
