Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375402489, Hardcover)Many of us grew up with a taboo on expressing angry or hurt feelings and became secretive adults, masking our feelings. "But masks harm, even deaden, the person underneath," says therapist Terry Vance. "Getting healthy requires becoming visible by taking off the masks and exposing the secrets--finding out who you are by discovering what you feel and think." In Letters Home: How Writing Can Change Your Life, Vance shows how "letter therapy" can help us resolve conflicts, effect change, and recover from our relationship with our parents. Learning to communicate from the heart can help mend crippling conflicts and open up possibilities for intimacy and growth. Expressing feelings and thoughts can create change, even if the letter is never mailed.
Letters Home alternates between teaching letter therapy and reprinting moving, compelling letters written by Vance's clients about subjects such as sexual abuse, beatings, isolation, and alcoholism. This book is a powerful tool for understanding your feelings and communicating them in a form that will help you to grow emotionally. Terry Vance is an astute therapist--just by reading this book, you'll gain valuable insights about yourself, how unresolved conflicts affect you, and how you can change. --Joan Price
