Many of us struggle with depression, anxiety, panic, addictions, and guilt. Often the source of this pain lies buried in patterns of behavior that we learned as children and continue to practice today. Because or poor parenting or childhood trauma, our growth toward maturity slows or stops entirely.
To become mature image-bearers of God, says Dr. Henry Cloud, we most learn to do four things:
- Bend to others
- Set healthy personal boundaries
- Accept both the good and bad in life
- Develop the traits of adulthood
In Changes That Heal, Dr. Cloud explains each of these needs. Then he identifies problems that arise when they are not met, and shows what changes to make to bring healing. With solid scriptural insights, Changes That Heal helps listeners form healthy relationships with themselves, others, and God--relationships that will bring new richness and purpose to life.
Dr. Henry Cloud is a clinical psychologist and co-director of Minirth Meier New Life Clinics West in Newport Beach, CA. He leads seminars and co-hosts a daily radio broadcast. He is the best-selling author of the book Changes That Heal, on which this tape is based, and the best-selling co-author with John Townsend of Boundaries, 12 'Christian' Beliefs That Can Drive You Crazy, and Safe People.
