Prisoners of Childhood

Prisoners of Childhood is written by a Swiss German Jewish psychotherapist named Alice Miller. 

It was the first book that helped Gabor Mate get clear directions in his future work about trauma:

  • stuff happens to us as children, negative things happen
  • we adapt to those things by taking on certain defensive ways of being
  • we live the rest of our lives from those defensive modes
  • we’re not actually experiencing the present but constantly reliving the past from a perspective that we acquired when we were helpless and vulnerable children.
