It Didn't Start with You

How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle

Mark Wolynn

This groundbreaking book explores how trauma can be passed down through generations and offers fresh, powerful tools for healing. Mark Wolynn offers a prescriptive guide to his method, the Core Language Approach, which includes diagnostic self-inventories and techniques for creating a family tree that maps back through generations. Through visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue, readers can uncover hidden emotional legacies and reclaim their emotional and physical health. It Didn't Start With You is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.

Here are some good books that establish that trauma ALSO lives in the body, and some is also INHERITED, and wrestling with only your thoughts is not helpful on its own. Good therapy addresses the brain, the body, and the past. Everything I've said here is from these books.      source
