This is a groundbreaking work for healing long-term emotional problems. "The Power of Memoir" is a pioneering how-to book that provides a new step-by-step program to use memoir writing as a therapeutic process. By going through these steps you'll learn how to choose the significant milestones and turning points that make up a coherent story leading to a life-changing epiphany. This work help you: uncover the secret stories that are the keys to healing; explore the dynamics and roles of dysfunctional families; and, heal old wounds, creating a better present and brighter future. Using many examples from her students and clients, the author shows how creative, well-planned, and carefully researched memoir writing can offer a process for sorting out the truth from lies and family myths.
