Cleveland Plain Dealer – May 16, 2004
“The harder we try to roll away from the dysfunction of our roots, the more
likely we are to become mired unconsciously in them. To become real, says
psychiatrist Saltz, we have to re-examine the stories we tell ourselves. In
her book, Saltz becomes the Dickensian ghost, escorting her patients and
readers through time. Going into the past, she shows them how the stories
helped them feel safe in a dysfunctional family… Her advice is both
sympathetic toward the wounds of childhood and unyielding about the
importance of taking responsibility as an adult.”
