Adult children of addicts carry hidden wounds from the trauma of growing up with abuse. Bestselling author and renowned psychologist Dr. Tian Dayton shows how to heal childhood pain and take charge of our own life in her book, The ACoA Trauma Syndrome: The Impact of Childhood Pain on Adult Relationships.

The ACoA Trauma Syndrome: The Impact Of Childhood Pain On Adult Relationships

Deerfield Beach, FL, September 10, 2012 – Adult children of addicts and children from dysfunctional families often carry silent, hidden wounds from the trauma of growing up with parental addiction, abuse, or neglect. When they remain buried and unattended, these wounds can reemerge and get played out in adult, intimate partnerships and parenting, re-creating relationship dynamics that mirror early pain.

In this authoritative guide, bestselling author and renowned psychologist Dr. Tian Dayton explains the science behind how trauma lives in the body/mind and shapes our neurobiology. The ACoA Trauma Syndrome: The Impact of Childhood Pain on Adult Relationships (HCI — $16.95) is for anyone who has lived with dysfunction and trauma related to addiction, abuse, neglect, physical or mental illness, military service, or cultural/ethnic or religious prejudice. It is about facing, processing, and healing childhood pain, marshaling strength and resilience, and taking charge of your own emotional life.
