What You Don't Know Can Hurt You.
All families have secrets. Some secrets are healthy, but others - those that John Bradshaw calls "dark secrets" - limit the wholeness and freedom of every member of the family, often generation after generation.
John Bradshaw's compelling new book takes us into the heart of the family's mysterious power to affect our lives. It explains how secrets are created, how they influence us (even if we don't know they are there) and the risks we take in exploring them.
At the core of this book is a step-by-step guide to uncovering the secrets of the past and present, using a tool called the genogram to chart key relationships. Through many fascinating examples, it shows us how to recognise crucial gaps and silences, reconstruct missing information, and decipher partial memories.
