Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a home where there is addiction or relationship trauma puts a child at great risk for long-term, post-traumatic stress effects that adversely compromise adult relationships. Best-selling author, psychologist, and psychodramatist Tian Dayton examines this trauma through an exploration of the way the brain and body process frightening or painful emotions and experiences in childhood. She shows how these traumas can become catalysts for unhealthy, self-medicating behaviors including drug and alcohol abuse, food issues, and sex, gambling, and shopping addictions.

This is a great book.

I enjoyed this book. Initially it was quite intellectual but it improved as the book progressed, in that the author used more emotion as the book moved on. I gave it four stars overall as I found the beginning of the book hard to grasp. Overall it's an informative book and I learned a lot from it. There is mention of the 12 steps but very little, which pleased me as I don't agree with the 12 steps.
