Book Review - Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues

Thawing Childhood Abandonment Issues

By: Don Carter

Book Reivew

Don Carter gives extensive attention to processing childhood hurts that have long been repressed in an effort to become a healthy adult and solving addictive behavior. His process of "thawing" (or dealing with repressed childhood issues) is the most involved I have read so far. I think using the word "abandonment" in the title is a little misleading. Abandonment is addressed through out the book, but it is one of many things addressed.

I also felt like the solution process Carter lays out is a little too repetitive for a book. I think it is great for a therapy sessions over several months, but I wonder if many readers will begin to tune out. Finally, there are many helpful descriptions of the emotional issues adults can face because of bad childhood experiences.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
