The Body Never Lies: The Lingering Effects of Hurtful Parenting | [Alice Miller]

The Body Never Lies: The Lingering Effects of Hurtful Parenting

Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness - be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases.

Publisher's Summary

An examination of childhood trauma and its surreptitious, debilitating effects by one of the world's leading psychoanalysts.

Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness - be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases. Never one to shy away from controversy, Miller urges society as a whole to jettison its belief in the Fourth Commandment and not to extend forgiveness to parents whose tyrannical childrearing methods have resulted in unhappy, and often ruined, adult lives. In this empowering work, writes Rutgers professor Philip Greven, "[listeners] will learn how to confront the overt and covert traumas of their own childhoods with the enlightened guidance of Alice Miller."

    "A healing experience"
    What made the experience of listening to The Body Never Lies the most enjoyable?

    It's great that 'honour thy mother and thy father' is questioned in this book. There are some parents who should not be honoured.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Body Never Lies?

    Don't know about moments but the whole book questions the way abused children are told to 'forgive' and 'honour' those who abused them when our bodies are telling us that our truth is so important.


    What does Sara Clinton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A caring genuine sounding approach I suppose.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Body Never Lies?

    It gives you the freedom to accept how you feel, to be understanding of yourself instead of being understanding of the abuser.


    Any additional comments?

    Good work.
