It is a self-help book so is very readable and will add depth to much of the worksheets I have added below which are only the highlights of the book that I give out to clients. For less than £20.00 this book will give you skills that will last a life time. I highly recommend it
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: Mind Over Mood
Guilt and Shame
Depression, Anxiety, Anger, Guilt and Shame
Experiencing More Happiness
Acts of Kindness
Healing Your Inner Child
You will also find a good introduction to what Inner Child Therapy is about in this article on Harley Therapy:
Although “Hardwiring Happiness” is not specifically an Inner Child text it talks about the Neuroscience of the brain (trust me it is very readable) and I believe gives a scientific explanation for why some the the Inner Child Work, especially some of the Inner Child Imagery work, can have a powerful effect. This is because “neurons that fire together, wire together”. It uses HEAL: Have a positive experience. Enrich it. Absorb it. Link positive with negative.
Here is an extract from the book: “Hardwiring Happiness: How to reshape your brain and your life“
Here is an exercise in HEAL . Print it off and have a go.
