In "No Bad Parts," Richard Schwartz explores the intricate landscape of the human mind through his Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. He presents the mind as a lively community of different characters, each representing various aspects of our personality, from the inner critic to the impulsive child, and learning that even the parts of us we see as problematic have positive intentions and valuable roles. Understanding and connecting with these parts can lead to greater self-acceptance and inner peace. I utilize a lot of his work in my therapy practice, I highly recommend this book!

In "Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents," Lindsay C. Gibson offers a bit of understanding for those of us who grew up feeling like we were the adults in the room while our parents were busy being, well, big kids. Gibson delves into the emotional rollercoaster of dealing with parents who were distant, rejecting, or completely self-absorbed. Think of it as learning to parent yourself after a lifetime of managing your parent’s tantrums, woo! With a mix of compassion and wit (my favorite), Gibson helps you identify the traits of emotionally immature parents and their impact on your life. She provides practical strategies to heal from the emotional chaos and establish healthier relationships. Patterns start somewhere... let's look at childhood!
