About "Changes That Heal"
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.

This book changed my life. Growing up, I was never taught boundaries... or how to say no. I observe that many people don't either. My best friend insisted that I read it when I was going through a hard time and this book has really helped change my life. I have given it to several close friends and would recommend it to anyone actually, except that this is really personal working-on-self stuff. This book is the best--I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
Bought this book ages ago and read it, got really inspired and went out and bought enough copies for a whole home group to use. Ironically was not in a home group at the time so ended up giving them out to different people. Was so very inspired. Am a big fan of the book Boundaries which a friend let me borrow and then I went out and bought my own copy and gave it away, then did the same over and over again. Now realise I need to re-read Changes That Heal because much water has passed under the bridge and I have forgotten what was in it but have not forgotten how it inspired me to buy multiple copies so will read again over the Christmas period. However, I can confidently say invest in this book, looking back at the chapters it looks like it covers what was in Boundaries and extends beyond.
