Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Parents act as a mirror to show a child who she or he is. Throughout childhood there will be other mirrors, but children inevitably return to the reflection in that original mirror in order to determine their goodness, importance, and self-worth. In Healing Your Emotional Self, Engel offers her highly effective Mirror Therapy program to help you reject the distorted images your parents either intentionally or unintentionally projected onto you. She explores the seven types of emotionally abusive or neglectful parents and the seven most common parental mirrors, providing specific advice and recovery strategies for each one.

Helping you raise your self-esteem and improve your self-image, this innovative step-by-step program provides you with the skills you need to:

  • Create a positive self-image separate from your abusive parents' distorted picture
  • Separate emotionally from your parents and provide for yourself what you missed as a child
  • Discover who you really are—including your likes, dislikes, values, goals, and dreams—by creating a word self-portrait and using other Mirror Therapy techniques
  • Overcome your tendency toward self-blame, self-hatred, and self-destructiveness
  • Learn self-nurturing and set effective limits to help you control your tendency to overeat, drink too much, overspend, and/or overwork
  • Become the person you are meant to be by being more accepting of yourself

Learn to love who you see in the mirror with the breakthrough program found in Healing Your Emotional Self. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book has been helpful, informative and applicable to aiding the recovery from emotional abuse. It also is inspirational in making the reader aware of many aspects of the abuse and how to deal with it.Therefore it is useful not only for recovery but as an educational tool. It is enlightening but be prepared for some hard work. The book also affirms many of the experiences one might doubt as truly being abusive and helps one to recognize the signs thereby helping one to deal more effectively with current abusive situations.

This is one of those books that I know I will be referring to often and have already recommended to others.

I see so many elements of my life experiences within the examples she has shared although not to quite the same degree. It felt like she was writing straight to me in language and terms so easy to grasp. Her exercises are easy to follow and the rationale makes so much sense. Thanks to Beverly Engel, I better understand my patterns and how to go about changing them for the better. I better understand why I have felt about myself the way that I have. This book affirms many of the steps I've already begun to take on my road to emotional health and not only provides guidance on how to take it further, but also infuses me with a hope that is further motivating me to continue the journey...not only for my own well-being, but also for the health of my relationships. Thank you, Beverly:)

This book really specifies the many issues in self image that even professionals do not. The program gets to the core issues and walks you through transformation in self healing... issues that you have absolutely no idea even exist because it's so far in your belief system. Absolutely amazing!!
