Healing The Shame That Binds You

Unknown year Psychology 5.15K Views 4 Comments
In an emotionally revealing way John Bradshaw shows us how toxic shame is the core problem in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and the drive to super-achieve. The result is a breakdown in the family system and our inability to go forward with our lives. We are bound by our shame.

Drawing from his 22 years of experience as a counselor, Bradshaw offers us the techniques to heal this shame. Using affirmations, visualizations, "inner voice" and "feeling" work plus guided meditations and other useful healing techniques, he realeases the shame that binds us to the past.

This important book breaks new ground in the core issues of societal and personal breakdown, offering techniques of recovery vital to all of us.

    I read Bradshaw's book ten years ago. When I was studying psychopathology.
    Yes, as Steve below suggests his delivery is a bit sermony, and I felt the book was very good but he was loading too much on shame, his delivery was 'born again'.
    I came across this video by chance after looking at something else, I saw the category psychology and decided to have a peek.
    His delivery is a little intense, bit of him and a deliberate attempt to get through to the audience. The content however is very close to being brilliant. The guy has managed to compress so much accurate up-to-date psychology into a short delivery whilst presenting it in a very digestible way. He connects and motivates, he offers himself up for identification, and never lets the subject matter become turgid.

    If you are not familiar with the area then I don't think you're going to come across a better introduction. Thank-you to whoever posted it,

    Bradshaw is an excellent communicator.  He is an educator and speaker.  Thank you, for posting this series.

    Thought he is a great speaker, and I enjoyed what he has to say. As a first year psychology student, I mostly liked the descriptive early childhood development.

    A documentary? It was a sermon.
    Lots of talking, a few decent jokes, & a few good points.
    I'd look elsewhere for a better use of time getting to the good stuff.
    I'm not saying to avoid the speaker or the topic; just not this one this time.
