Emotional Inheritance : Moving beyond the legacy of trauma, Hardback Book

Emotional Inheritance : Moving beyond the legacy of trauma Hardback



"Galit Atlas deftly shows why the hurts and stuckness that can plague us can be faced and, yes, dissolved.

Contemporary psychoanalysis at its best." - Susie Orbach, author of Fat Is a Feminist IssuePast family trauma can keep us unconsciously connected to the past.

It shapes our lives in ways we don't always recognise, and can keep us from living to our full potential. In this transformative book, award-winning psychoanalyst Dr Galit Atlas draws back the veil on the legacy of intergenerational trauma.

Entwining the stories of her patients, her own stories, and decades of research, she shows how the people we love and those who raised us live inside us - how we take on their emotional pain - and she helps us identify the links between our life struggles and the 'emotional inheritance' we all carry.

For it is only by following the traces those ghosts leave that we can truly change our destiny.
