Healing the Child Within with Charles Whitfield

source: New Thinking Allowed    2016年4月4日
Charles Whitfield, MD, is a board certified internist who transitioned into psychiatry. He is author of the best-selling book, Healing the Child Within. His numerous other books include Choosing God: A Bird’s Eye View of A Course in Miracles, Teachers of God: Further Reflections on a Course in Miracles, The Truth About Depression, The Truth About Mental Illness, Not Crazy: You May Not Be Mentally Ill, Wisdom to Know the Difference, and – co-authored with his wife, Barbara Harris Whitfield, The Power of Humility.
Here he presents his hypothesis that the child within can also be identified as the true self. When trauma occurs in childhood, this core aspect of human consciousness goes into hiding and is, typically, replaced with an egotistical false self. The recovery process is a hero’s journey involving many ups and downs. It requires a supportive and safe environment. The process may involve age regression, journaling, individual, and group therapy. We can learn from our mistakes and from our pain. Well over fifty percent of the population have had traumatic experiences in childhood.
