Healing for Damaged Emotions , first published in and since translated into over 15 languages, has helped over a million readers worldwide deal honestly and successfully with their inner hurts. Through the realistic, scriptural approach that Dr. David Seamands brings to this deeply personal subject, you too can find healing -- and then become an agent of healing for other strugglers.

John Wimber , David Yonggi Cho , Robert Schuller , and Norman Vincent Peale are some of the well-known pop psychological practitioners of inner healing, but it has spread widely in so- called evangelical circles in a more sophisticated form through such "Christian" psychologists as David Seamands , H. Norman Wright, and James G. Friesen, as well as a number of lay therapists like Fred and Florence Littauer. Inner healing therapies are offshoots of Freudian and Jungian theories rooted in the occult. They have destructively impacted secular society for decades and are now taking their devastating toll within the professing Church.
