John Bradshaw is one of the 100 most influential writers on emotional health in the twentieth century, as selected by his fellow mental health professionals.
Healing the Shame that Binds You is John Bradshaw’s most enduring work. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame, often learned young and maintained into adulthood, is the core component in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions, and drive to super-achieve.
In an honest and emotionally revealing style based largely on his personal experiences with addition and his decades as a counselor, John Bradshaw moves from the source and manifestation of toxic shame to the practical tools. (Product description)
