Stories That Heal : Reparenting Adult Children of Dysfunctional
by Lee Wallas




Overview -

Stories That Heal addresses adult children of dysfunctional families, who from infancy received distorted messages from their parents, messages that taught: You are not lovable or important. Don't feel; don't trust yourself or anyone else; don't talk. As children, they incorporated these verbal and nonverbal teachings uncritically, since they were taught by their parents.

These teaching tales, told not about the clients themselves but about others who seem familiar, start with the mother's pregnancy and progress through the developmental stages, always depicting parenting as facilitative and supportive. Hearing these stories while in hypnotic trance, clients experience healthy reparenting, replacing hurtful past experience with loving infancy, childhood, and adolescence. In this way the adult child incorporates a new childhood.

The book includes a step-by-step preparation for increasing clients' receptivity to the stories, describing how rapport can be established and trust developed during the initial sessions of hypnotherapy. In addition, the author shares clients' reactions to the stories, showing how reparenting in trance enables them to move beyond anger and self-deprecation to forgiveness and personal growth.

Many people bemoan their unhappy, deprived childhoods--and with good cause. However, as Lee Wallas so poignantly demonstrates, It's never too late to have a happy childhood The adult child can experience reparenting and truly grow up into happy adulthood.
