Publisher's Summary

Have you ever heard of your inner child? Well, this is the classic book that started it all.

In 1987, Charlie Whitfield's breakthrough concept of the child within - that part of us which is truly alive, energetic, creative, and fulfilled - launched the inner child movement. Healing the Child Within describes how the inner child is lost to trauma and loss, and how by recovering it, we can heal the fear, confusion, and unhappiness of adult life.

Eighteen years and more than a million copies sold later, Healing the Child Within is a perennial selling classic in the field of psychology. And it is even more timely today than it was in 1987. Recent brain research, particularly on the effects of trauma on the brain of developing children, has supported Whitfield's intuitive understanding as a psychiatrist.

About HCI Recovery Classics: HCI's recovery backlist contains some of the most important and best-selling works in the recovery field. These books are still sought after today, selling more than 100,000 copies per year. Our new line of branded audiobooks features expanded editions of our top recovery titles, new introductions, updates on pertinent recent developments in the field, and contemporary new cover art.

    "Don't need to know the history"
    What was most disappointing about Charles Whitfield’s story?

    In the first parts, the author goes on and on about the history and the concepts (the leaders in the field) of the "child within." It's technical and boring. I feel like I'm reading a text book in psyche class. I want to get to the meat of it, not how it was conceptualized. I lost interest.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Feifar?

    Very old school narration. If the content was interesting, I wouldn't mind it that much, but with the boring introduction, it made it hard to keep focused.

    "OK but not great"

    too long and repeats itself. There are better books out on the market. No bad but not great.

    "A classic that is helpful"
    If you could sum up Healing the Child Within in three words, what would they be?

    There are no words to explain full extent of self awareness that's had by reading or listening to this book.
