In simple, lay-person's terms, 'Inner Child Journeys' explains a safe, step-by-step method for understanding the emotional reactions triggered in us by our children, at all ages. This Process was tested and refined over many years by Australian psychologist Robin Grille, and it is based on sound neuropsychological principles. In its 'light' or 'in-depth' forms, this Inner Child Process can help you gain new and profound insights about yourself and about your children, honing your own intuition about what your children need in order to thrive. It will help you understand even your children's most baffling behaviors - via a better understanding of your own childhod experiences and how they've affected you. At the same time, this Process helps you to better understand your deepest emotional needs, and how to have those needs met. Ultmately, Inner Child Journeys are about healing long-held emotional wounds that are often brought to the surface through our interactions with our children. Most of us encounter, from time to time, significant challenges and difficult terrain in the course of parenting or educating our children. This Inner Child Process helps you engage with the most insurmountable challenges in your child-rearing endeavours, and turn those challenges into exciting and empowering personal-growth and healing opportunities for you. The book gives no advice about how to raise your children, nor how to educate your students. That's because this book helps you access your own inner knowledge, based on your own experiences as a child. The more you befriend your Inner Child, the more empathic and effective a parent you become. Your children benefit enormously as you grow. Written for parents, elders, schoolteachers and psychotherapists, this book shows you how to turn child-rearing into a most exciting and transformative personal growth and healing adventure. Indeed, 'our children grow us up'.

Review quote

'It's one of our greatest fears--that we might pass our hang-ups on to our kids. Robin, in his honest, meticulous way, shows how we can avoid this, how we can plunge into our own murky depths and find treasure, by releasing old hurts so we don't repeat them. A breakthrough book, full of surprises, honest, vulnerable and real.'

-- Steve Biddulph, am, author, 10 Things Girls Need Most, Raising Girls, Raising Boys, The Complete Secrets of Happy Children, and The New Manhood

'As parents we either unconsciously parent exactly as we were parented or we consciously try to do the exact opposite. Either way our parenting is trapped by how we were parented, I can think of no more important and liberating work for parents to do than to take this Inner Child healing Journey with Robin Grille as their guide.'

-- Pam Leo, author, Connection Parenting

'What an insightful book. We couldn't put it down!'

-- Dominique Ben and Mim Dart, directors, MummyCon

'This book is gold! Robin's practical approach will leave you, and those you love, feeling like a fresh summer breeze has come through your life.'

-- Roger Harman, CEO, Corporate Heart International

'As a former relationship counsellor, I have found inner child work to be one of the most profound approaches to clients' wellbeing I know. As a mother, I found Inner Child Journeys made sense of the confusion, shame and helplessness that could sometimes rob me of the joy and wonder of parenthood. As a daughter, it helped me to understand and forgive my own parents for the neediness of their own Inner Child. There are very few books I would assert are essential reading for parents. This is one of them.'

-- Elly Taylor, Perinatal relationship expert, author and founder, Becoming Us,
