UGX65,000

The author has achieved worldwide recognition for her work on the causes and effects of childhood traumas – particularly with her book The Drama of Being a Child. Now she has returned to this book and radically rewritten much of it in the light of her move beyond the framework of psychoanalysis. She believes that violence and cruelty in society have their roots in conventional child-rearing and in education which can create a prison out of childhood. In this edition, she describes how we can use her discoveries to help free ourselves. She explains, with many examples, how it is possible to recover lost feelings and repressed history, resulting in a healthy beginning – for us and for our children.
