By Don Carter, MSW, LCSW

As Rod Stewart said back in the 1970's, "the first cut is the deepest". Since Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues focuses on those "first and deepest cuts", it is a program that will take a while to work through completely. This 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, etc.
