Since they were discovered more than 85 years ago, Dr Edward Bach's system of flower essences has been widely and successfully established in their use for treating personality traits, negative emotions and attitudes. The essences are unique in that they do not treat problems per se but instead seek to heal the personality at the center of the problem. They are simple to use, easily accessible and gentle in action yet powerfully effective.
Healing The Family aims at introducing the Bach Flower Essences as a form of self-help and group therapy. Readers are exposed to an alternative way of perceiving family life and its many issues and challenges, and taught how to use the 38 flower essences to understand one's own strength and deficiency in the helper role.
