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.

I loved it
Excellent Update for a Timeless Topic
I do not have time to sit and read a book. I do have time to listen to one so this was the perfect version for me.
The whole book is a great read. You will find one section that provides updated content especially worthy of your attention. A contemporary review of existing medications and uses which may be pertinent for the reader (or you, or your client; wink wink). I was pleasantly surprised with these updates (Part II, Neurobiology of the ACOA Syndrome).
The narration provides a great backdrop for the content; inflection, tone, pacing etc. all bring the words on the page to life. Nice narration.
YES, and I did.
This topic has had thorough review over the years, but many texts are lacking in depth of content. I found this book offering detailed content superior to most of the 'pop-psych' books similar in the '90s (when the concept became more popularized). The historical texts I have found with great content for this topic ----- On the Family - John Bradshaw ----- It will Never Happen to Me.... Claudia Black ----- Struggle for Intimacy - Janet Geringer Woititz ----- Most others over the years I have found..... less robust. This book is well worth your time!
