    1. I randomly came across this book at Barnes and Noble recently As a therapist whom mainly works with clients needing help with trauma, addiction, and recovery including those who grew up in a family atmosphere of addiction , I always like to find books on these topics in order to gain a in depth understanding of the emotional dynamics at play and how to use these dynamics as tools for my clients healing in therapy I highly recommend this book for both clinicians and as a self help book for thos [...]


    2. This book was an easy read, but somewhat repetitive It did give good explanations of trauma and it s lasting effects into adulthood.


    3. A good book for Children of Alcoholics and Grandchildren of Alcoholics that is a little up to date than many other books on the topic Lots of good insights and thoughts on therapy and self help ideas for learning how to live with it all.



    4. I finished listening to the audio version and as soon as it finished went right back to the start to listen again I ve never done this before, but this book was so packed with interesting insights that I want to read it all over again I ve read books on ACOA and books about PTSD but this is both better than any of the others I ve read on those topics, and the first one that has brought those two subjects together Some of the ways that I project past experiences onto life situations today became [...]


    5. I had no idea what this syndrome was until I started doing some research for a friend This book helps to explain how real childhood stress of painful adulthood relationships affect a child s mental development.Sometimes repetitive, this book breaks down how the imbalance of roles and responsibilities shift when alcoholism, addiction or even sexual abuse are present Some abuse examples here are tough to read and may bring up some intense emotions Interesting read.


    6. This was a very informative book identifying the long lasting effects of early childhood trauma especially the effects on the formative brain I found it quite confronting must go back for a second read when I am in the right mindset as can be triggering in parts.


    7. This was a very informative book, but some areas were a little hard to follow All in all though it taught me a lot about the ACOA and trauma I would recommend it to others.
