absolutely the best
I have used his audio cassettes judiciously in alcohol and drug counseling with adults. Bradshaw recommends that clients have 1 year of recovery before starting this work. My setting does not allow for this and after careful thought and input from fellow counselors I will allow clients to listen to Home Coming. CAUTION: Any therapist using these tapes should have already worked through their issues before using tapes to help others work through their issues.
Bradshaw does excellent job of explaining developmental stages and how stages tend to repeat themselves. He explains that if we were not successful in working through a stage, then later on in life when stage is repeated, we are apt to not be successful again. Much of this has to do with our inner child being hurt. This inner child tends to act out (or act in) in various ways, well into our adulthood and can affect our relationships with other.
Bradshaw addresses three stages: infancy, toddler and pre-schooler. After discussing a stage, he will use guided imagery to take the listener back to that stage and work through difficult experiences. He also uses NLP neurolinguistic programing to help clients reprograming their thinking.
I've had remarkable results and highly recommend thier use with supervision of a therapist/counselor.
One final note: the CD versions do not break at the same points as in his cassettes and would recommend that user re-record the audios so that they break in less akward places.

I don't know what audible tape the previous reviewer listened to (1 star by "subterfuge") but it wasn't this one. No Christian slant here, except to refer to how some religious upbringing can negatively affect our inner child.
The author swings between recordings infront of a live audience to personal meditations. A wonderful speaker and very convincing.
A useful tape for anyone, not just those with extreme childhood experiences.

Interesting, but not the book.
This is an audio workshop from John Bradshaw, not simply an audio version of the book. It includes some narrative from him, extracts from his group workshops and "visualisation" to listen to as part of the process. It contains a lot less content than the book, but in a easily accessible format.
