About the Course:
Do you sometimes feel as if you are living your life to please others? Do you give other people the benefit of doubt but second-guess yourself? Do you struggle with perfectionism, anxiety, lack of confidence, emotional emptiness, or eating disorders? In your intimate relationships, have you found it difficult to get close without losing your sense of self?
If so, you may be among the fifteen million adults in the United States who were raised with unhealthy parental control. In this groundbreaking bestseller, If You Had Controlling Parents: How to Make Peace with Your Past and Take Your Place in the World, by accomplished family therapist Dan Neuharth, Ph.D., you’ll discover whether your parents controlled eating, appearance, speech, decisions, feelings, social life, and other aspects of your childhood—and whether that control may underlie problems you still struggle with in adulthood. Packed with inspiring case studies and dozens of practical suggestions, this book shows your how to leave home emotionally so you can improve assertiveness, boundaries, confidence, quiet your “inner critics,” and bring more balance to your moods and relationships. Offering compassion, not blame, Dr. Neuharth helps you make peace with your past and avoid over controlling your children and other loved ones.
This course is based on the book, If You Had Controlling Parents: How to Make Peace With Your Past and Take Your Place in the World created by Dan Neuharth, Ph.D.
