Pub. Date:
Since the landmark publication of The Drama of the Gifted Child, no one has been more influential than Alice Miller in empowering adults whose lives were maimed emotionally and physically during childhood. Now Dr. Miller goes even further, presenting groundbreaking theories that enhance communication between therapist and patient and enable adults to express powerful emotions that have been trapped for years. Practical and perceptive, Miller’s work explains what we can expect from therapy, how we can identify the causes of our own pain, and why subconscious pain, unaddressed for decades, manifests itself later as depression, self-mutilation, primal inadequacy, and chronic loneliness. Containing searing excerpts from “The Diary of a Mother,” in which a mother learns how to communicate honestly with both herself and her daughter, as well as a trove of Miller’s own moving answers to her thousands of readers, Free from Lies is the culmination of a life devoted to healing others.
