Healing the Child Within : Discovery and Recovery for Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families
Have you ever heard of your inner child? Well, this is the classic book that started it all.
In 1987, Charlie Whitfield’s breakthrough concept of the child within–that part of us which is truly alive, energetic, creative and fulfilled–launched the inner child movement. Healing the Child Within describes how the inner child is lost to trauma and loss, and how by recovering it, we can heal the fear, confusion and unhappiness of adult life.
Eighteen years and more than a million copies sold later, Healing the Child Within is a perennial selling classic in the field of psychology. And it is even more timely today than it was in 1987. Recent brain research, particularly on the effects of trauma on the brain of developing children, has supported Whitfield’s intuitive understanding as a psychiatrist.

Healing the Inner Child
Inner Child Healing is a powerful way to free the child within you. We must touch the hand of the child with a sense of understanding using deep mindfulness and relaxation. Mindfulness is the process of being more aware of what the child is experiencing, offering the child a hand of understanding, the hand of your adult wisdom. Once the adult wisdom of understanding begins the process of kindness and compassion towards the child, the child will feel a sense of security. The child can let go of the pain and anger held deep within the shadows of its mind. The unconscious defence mechanisms suppress these feelings in order to protect the welfare of the individual, in other words, the child aspect of the self will always go with what is familiar rather than do something outside of its comfort zone. Think of the child as a part of your whole, a little like a patch of grass has not grown lush and green from lack of sun and nurture.
