Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues is an "Inner Child" approach for grieving abandonment issues and healing the unfinished business of childhood. Since the wounds of unmet childhood needs are emotional in nature, recovery from these wounds needs a healing process emotional in nature. We humans are also meaning-makers and information processors who need to know why and how we are the way we are. That's why Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues is designed with an insight-oriented (cognitive) component as well as an experiential (emotional) component. The program integrates an interactive workbook with approximately 60 MP3 Audio programs that are designed to help release blocked emotions and resolve childhood grief & loss issues. While the audios are not absolutely necessary, they will enhance healing process dramatically. Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues is the second in the four-part Thawing the Iceberg Series by Don Carter, MSW, LCSW. In this book, Carter puts a strong focus on experiencing and releasing the emotions of the past and relies heavily on its many audio programs to facilitate the emotional component to that healing process. During the wounding process... the pain that accumulated during the first stage of development was carried forward as a foundation for the work of the second stage... then the combined pain from the first and second stages are carried forward as a foundation for the experience of the third stage, etc. Similarly, the healing that accumulates as you work through the first stage is carried forward as a foundation for healing the second stage... then the combined healing from the first and second stages are carried forward as a foundation for healing the third stage, and so on. NOTICE: Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues contains sections that are greatly enhanced by the use of 60+ MP3 Audios that are sold separately: Email the author at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
