During a campaign leg in California, I told CBS News in Monterey that to heal the country, you have to heal the family. I am a former counselor who worked extensively with family system dynamics. If a child grows up in a dysfunctional home and is neglected, verbally abused, physically abused… there is, for instance, internalized anger in the victim. Years later this explodes in violence on the streets, or domestic violence in the home, or prolonged repressed anger that ‘implodes’ physically into a breakdown of the immune system and/or implodes into psychological problems. Those who grow up shorted emotionally also are filled with internal holes they try to fill with compulsive sexual acting out, drugs, compulsive overeating, workaholism… Just look around society today, I told the BG (Bowling Green State University) News… I have just completed an extensive updating of our Heal the Family position paper.
