Someone who wants to learn more

I have no real knowledge about Adult/Child Psychology, and really haven't even read much of Don's material on this, but I most certainly will.
My only contribution is that in the course of my life (I'm 70) I continue to see how things that happened to me and to my 6 children in our childhoods, both positive and negative, have carried forward to adulthood. The positive ones probably don't need much analysis, but the negative ones sometimes cripple people for life. If there is a way to explore those negative experiences and somehow overcome them, what a productive use of time that could be.
To be perfectly honest, I am a skeptive by nature. I've tried many self help programs and have always been disappointed in the results, though I can't really say any of them have been a waste of time.
I do think that Don's approach at reaching more people with his considerable depth of knowledge on this and other subjects, with this technological approach is an incredible effort. As web technology becomes more and more common place with the general public more and more people can benefit from Don's information interactively without just reading or spending the money for face to face interaction.
I am retired now and hope I will be able to find more time to devote to Don's material using this approach. I still have a few handicaps from my childhood and I know my children do too. I'd sure like to see if there is a way to move us beyond those handicaps to be happier and more useful people.
