Parent to himself: healing childhood injuries

Today, we too often hear about cases of domestic violence, whose victims are often children. This reminds me that even if we did not have reliable and loving parents, if they did not educate us properly, we must learn how to educate ourselves in order to survive in this world.

And this applies to everyone – not only adults, but also children.

Of course, cases of domestic violence against children are unfair. But the therapist should not look at the situation from such a position. After all, this means recognizing the victim in the child, which will not help him cope with the problem. Pity does not help him move forward. Continue reading
