Jochen  Peichl - Red Card for the Inner Critic


Learning to use the inner critics as a resource

The inner critic, fault-finder, know-it-all, defeatist and other internal spirits of personal torment have been with us since childhood. By the time we are adults, they make themselves known more than ever. Sometimes they are beneficial, protecting us from stupid mistakes. Yet sometimes these internal critics are bothersome: they get on our nerves and make our lives burdensome.

In his new book, Jochen Peichl presents typical inner critics: the inspector, the perfectionist, the slave-driver, the peace seeker, the judge, and the prosecutor. He shows how and why these inner critics develop and how they had, at least originally, quite good intentions. Through many practical examples, we will learn how we can make friends with this internal team and better make use of their potential. The goal is to use their strengths and to learn to understand how the internal critics can be a support. Along with this, we learn how it is also necessary to allow the injured internal child to heal and become integrated into the present.

•Enough of self-condemnation

•With many exercises, comprehensive tests, and personal case histories
