Barbara Rogers shares in her book her experience of liberating and changing her life through therapy. An unusual sequence of poems takes the reader on a journey of making the unconscious conscious; of becoming aware of the true feelings and needs of a human being, who was not allowed to have them or be aware of them; of changing a life to embrace and make come true the values that could not exist in the dark world where the writer came from. The author has given voice to the childhood pain that usually does not dare to venture outside of the therapist’s office.From the Author:
My book is the result of overcoming tremendous fears. These screams were not only forbidden by my parents, but there was also no one around me who wanted to hear them, much less do something about them. Until I entered therapy at the age of thirty two, my unconscious and my feelings had been buried. I had never remembered a dream—but could recall my first, unforgettable dream when I was about three months into therapy. It was a tremendous struggle to face my past. But with time, my feelings and needs came alive and helped me confront my present life and what I needed to change. I hope that my book helps to create a new awareness of the kind of feelings and destructiveness, which emotional, physical, and sexual cruelty creates in children. I hope that it supports many others to listen to their own screams and take them seriously. I wish that it encourages therapists to face their own pasts, and to accompany their clients on that same journey with compassion and courage, and with the knowledge and conviction that they are supporting mankind in one of the most important endeavors of our time—to confront and change the damage which cruel child rearing practices have on our souls and lives.
