Wounded ChildDuring our early years our pure child gets dammaged and oppressed. Our needs will inevitableby be ignored or misunderstood once or more often. Our boundaries will inevitableby be transgressed once or more often by our parents or caretakers. Totally dependent and vulnerable as we were, we have for example experienced feelings of:

  • anxiety, panic
  • rejection, abandonment
  • insecurity
  • abuse (physical, verbal, emotional, sexual violence)
  • anger, rage, hate
  • disgust
  • sadness
  • powerlesness
  • shame, unworthiness

Around the pure child a layer of pain and drama arose, that we call the wounded child. To survive these wounds we developped, each in our own unique way, The Surviving Child.
