With more than thirty-five years of experience in psychotherapy, Dr. Halpern enables the adult child to understand his or her parent and foster a positive, healthy adult relationship. In all respects, you appear to be well-adjusted, reasonably successful adult, but in the presence of your parents, you feel vulnerable, dependent, guilty, insecure—childlike. They manipulate you, smother you, demand your attention or elicit your resentment. In clear, nonclinical terms, renowned psychotherapist Dr. Howard Halpern shows you how to break these familiar family routines so that you can build healthy, rewarding parent-child relationships. He teaches you, for example, how to handle martyred mothers, despotic fathers, and moralistic, unloving, or seductive parents. He also addresses the sensitive topics of how to deal with aging, divorced, or dying parents. Resolving conflicts with your parents will enable you, finally, to cut loose—to start being yourself rather than your parent's child. Without guilt, revenge, or fear as your motives, you will be able to make the choices in love, work, and values that do justice to who you are. With more than thirty-five years of experience in psychotherapy, Dr. Halpern enables the adult child to understand his or her parent and foster a positive, healthy adult relationship.

»Du sollst nicht merken« - nämlich: was dir in deiner Kindheit angetan wurde und was du in Wahrheit selbst tust - ist ein niemals ausgesprochenes, aber sehr früh verinnerlichtes Gebot, dessen Wirksamkeit im Unbewußten des einzelnen und der Gesellschaft Alice Miller zu beschreiben versucht. Ihre Analyse dieses Gebots führt sie zu einer grundsätzlichen Kritik an der Triebtheorie Sigmund Freuds. Die Wirksamkeit des Gebots »Du sollst nicht merken« zeigt sie anhand ihrer Analysen von Träumen, Märchen und literarischen Werken auf, wobei aus ihrer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Œuvre Franz Kafkas ein neues Kafka-Bild hervorgeht und implizit eine Theorie menschlicher Kreativität.
