Divided into eight sections, this book takes readers through a step-by-step process of internal transformation. Placing great emphasis on the importance of the individual's relationship with one's self, Desjardins guides readers through a provoking examination of childhood relationships. Using the term "Inner Child" to describe the "authentic self," readers analyze unmet emotional and psychological needs rooted in the formative years of their development. This assessment of the inner child forms the basis of Desjardins' theory of holistic healing: because "body, mind, emotions, and spirit" work in synthesis to produce healthy individuals, and by extension, a healthy marriage, a reader must confront and recognize the wants and needs of his or her inner child and in doing so, recognize the deficiencies in his or her own character.
