“In addition to demystifying intergenerational trauma, this workbook charts a clear road map for anyone seeking a well-grounded understanding of complex trauma. With expert guidance, Lynne Friedman-Gell and Joanne Baron connect us to the core beliefs we inherited, to the often unrecognized legacy passed down by our caregivers, unknowingly and without our consent. Most remarkable about this workbook is the consistently caring way with which symptoms are identified as the gateway to healing. The wide-ranging interventions, always supported by real-life examples and consistent hopeful messages, are an essential key to unlocking the past and finding our true identity.” —Dr. Aline LaPierre, Founder and Director of The NeuroAffective Touch Institute and Coauthor of Healing Developmental Trauma
