The first publication of Drama of Being a Child and of this 1997 edition are separated by fifteen years of experience - the author's experience with her own self-therapy and with other recent therapy methods, and finally her knowledge of the life histories of the several thousand readers who have written to her. The research into childhood she has undertaken in this period has led to further fine-tuning of her earlier findings, as is ocumented and illustrated here with an abundance of examples. The author examines the consequences of repression at personal and social levels, the causes of the physical and
psychological harm done to children and how this can be prevented, and finally the new methods at our disposal for dealing with the consequences of infant traumas.

Review:

Rare and compelling in its compassion and its unassuming eloquence...her examples are so vivid and so ordinary they touch the hurt child in us all (NEW YORK MAGAZINE)

About the Author:

Alice Miller lives in France. For more than twenty years she taught and practised psychoanalysis. In 1973, due to her spontaneous painting she discovered her childhood history. Now, she radically questions the validity of psychoanalytic theories. As a result, in 1988 she resigned from the International Psychhoanalytical Association and, in 1995, revised 'The Drama of being a Child'.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The author has achieved worldwide recognition for her work on the causes and effects of childhood traumas - particularly with her book "The Drama of Being a Child". Now she has returned to this book and radically rewritten much of it in the light of her move beyond the framework of psychoanalysis. She believes that violence and cruelty in society have their roots in conventional child rearing and in education which can create a prison out of childhood. In this edition she describes how we can use her discoveries to help free ourselves. She explains, with many examples, how it is possible to recover lost feelings and repressed history, resulting in a healthy beginning - for us and for our children. 'Rare and compelling in its compassion and its unassuming eloquence.her examples are so vivid and so ordinary they touch the hurt child in us all' New York Magazine Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
