Today, armed with the knowledge contained in these pages, a prospective mother can begin protecting her child, starting at conception, and likely prevent a host of problems that might otherwise prove devastating to her child’s entire life. This is the only way we can truly build a better world. More than anyone in the entire world, Janov has demonstrated love is essential for human growth and development as well as health throughout life.
Those of us with the misfortune of having mothers who smoked and drank and lived with stress and the like while pregnant, are saddled with all sorts of problems that range from ADHD to cancer, all of which could have been prevented if our mothers had only known what we now know. But they didn’t. The good news is that now this information is available thanks to half a century of clinical investigation by Dr. Janov and those he trained.
Even now, with Primal Therapy, much of the damage can be reversed. However, some of that damage done is permanent, because these traumatic imprints controlled much of our growth and development and prevented us from reaching our full potential. Not only that, there are critical windows or time frames in which certain needs must be met or we are forever left bereft of important parts of ourselves necessary for us to be the whole persons we were meant to be.
Thanks to Dr. Janov and his work, psychotherapy is rapidly moving into the realm of science. Get this book and read it and reread it until you truly understand it. You will be glad you did and your children will be forever thankful to you.
From his earliest books to now, Dr Janov consistently developed unique insights into the relationship between the biological model of human nature and the behavioral model of human behavior. No other scientist has yet come close to articulating these insights. Until recently.
Newly armed with MRI imaging of the brain, and more recently armed with emerging knowledge of epigenetics, scientists are only now discovering the key features of human behavior that Dr Janov first articulated 50 years ago!
Amazing that Arthur Janov created his model solely out of robust empirical observation -- without the benefit of 21st century science.
