Thawing Adult Child Syndrome, is a "here-and-now" focused approach for healing the subconscious programming of one who grew up in a less-than-nurturing family. If you repeat dysfunctional patterns that cause problems and then wonder "Why do I do that?" or "Why am I like this?" you need this book!

Thawing Adult Child Syndrome focuses in on the "here-and-now" symptoms of dysfunction in our adult life and relationships caused by our subconscious programming. This insight-oriented program helps bring one's "Inner Family of Self" & "Life Script" to the surface so that appropriate changes can be made.

Thawing Adult Child Syndrome helps heal your relationship with yourself. Based upon the idea that "One cannot have a healthy relationship with others until they first develop a healthy relationship with themselves", I highly recommend completing Thawing Adult Child Syndrome and following that up with Thawing your Relationships.
