|Changes that Heal Mar 11, 2007|
|I have passed it out and have been using it for some teaching.|
Anyone needed a healing, this is the book to read.
|Changes That Heal more than you'll believe Jan 20, 2007|
|All I can say about this book is, "Wow, why didn't I read this 25 years ago. It would have made all the difference in the world!" |
If you want real straight-forward answers to why you can's say, 'no' or why you're suffering from depression then you'll find them here. You'll also find solutions and comfort in the fact that your issues can be overcome.
I recommend this to everyone!
|Excellent Jan 17, 2007|
|This book is somewhat of a repeat of "Boundaries", by the same authors, but is very good reading if you are interested in what causes people to have problems in life. It would be good for counselors to use.|
|Great overview of bonding and maturity issues. Dec 3, 2006|
|If you are a Christian and you think that something went wrong somewhere back in the past, and you're a mess now because of that, this book is a good place to begin. It'll cost you a lot less than that first 10 or 20 hours of psychological counseling.|
In fact, this may help you if you are not a Christian because many of the psychological priciples related to bonding and personality development are sound, I believe, even without trying to prove them by citing scripture passages.
That leads me to the primary weakness of this book, and the reason I deducted a star. The author relentlessly wrests scripture out of it's original context to buttress his already very convincing illumination of various bonding and maturity issues. This wasn't necessary, and it got more and more irritating as I progressed through the book.
That said, there is some real wisdom in this book. The pages on "separating good and bad" are priceless.
So, put the fee for your first five minutes of counseling toward the book and you might save thousands in the long run.
|help without the psychobabble Aug 20, 2006|
|Dr. Cloud does a thoughtful and credible job of weaving his Christian beliefs in with his psychological insights to create a useful and practical self-help book. By following his advice, readers can grow deeper relationships, a stronger faith, and greater confidence in their ability to solve problems and deal with the difficulties of life.|
In each of the sixteen chapters he offers readers techniques that have worked in his psychological practice for bonding with others in a healthy way, creating and respecting personal boundaries, accepting both the good things and the bad thing about life, and learning to take responsibility for our choices.
Even tough he sometimes uses examples from the Bible out of context, his insights are worth reading and should help most people to better understand the past and how it affects the way they look at life and to make positive changes in their attitude and actions to help them grow healthier relationships.
