Product description

Review

"An enormous help to anyone looking to let go of past disappointments and self-recrimination and get on with the essential work of healing, building boundaries, and acquiring the skill to reach your goals."
-- John Bradshaw, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Homecoming

"With a program designed to undo primal fears, [Anderson] tackles such topics as lowered self-esteem, lovesick feelings, food urges, diet, chronic depression, procrastination, heartache, and a primary source of conflict with relationships, 'enormous emotional suction cups.' She also examines brain activity and factors preventing the body's production of such 'yummy neurochemicals' as oxytocin and vasopressin....[R]eaders under stress who are desperate for help will view this book as a valuable tool for healing."
-- Publishers Weekly

"Groundbreaking."
-- PsychologyToday.com

"Shows that self-defeating behavior can be changed without in-depth examination and resolution....A helpful scenario, requiring determination and commitment, for dealing with difficult issues. This will appeal to readers seeking change."
-- Library Journal

"The outer child is a bratty, angry drama queen who is responsible for unhealthful and unwanted behavior, according to the book. Anderson's three-prong outer child recovery program consists of dialoguing, guided visualization and action steps. The second half of the book addresses special applications for the program, such as dieting, procrastination, debt and depression."
-- The Washington Post
