Caring for the Child Within: A Manual for Grown-ups
by Jane Rowan
This is a powerful, concise guide to nurturing your Inner Child. Jane wrote this manual after working with her inner child in therapy for more than ten years. The book is unique because it is written by a client (and survivor of incest) not a therapist or outside expert.
This booklet explains what we mean by the Inner Child--why there still is a young one inside of the grownup you. It is especially useful for survivors of sexual, psychological, and physical abuse and those with PTSD. Jane tells you how to listen to your Inner Child, how to soothe and care for her or him. She gives many examples of how to get in touch with this little one and why it's important to revisit difficult places over and over again. She shows how pleasure and creativity are vitally connected to your inner child, as well.
Jane says: "I originally wrote this booklet for myself. The little girl inside of me asked for it, wanting an authoritative voice to tell me how to treat her well. I'm delighted to share it with you and hope it may be of use."
