    If you have parents that never talked about feelings, suppressed them or avoided them and you feel empty or lost then this book really helps you to work through a recovery process to turn your life around. This psychologist has really pinpointed the problems associated with Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) and helps you to heal from these often hidden problems that are a result of this treatment.

    “When you grow up looking into your parents’ eyes and seeing an inadequate, unclear or inaccurate reflection of yourself, you do not have the opportunity to learn who you are. This sets you up to struggle through life with a lack of information about your true nature.” Life changing book for me. The only problem a I have with it is the Quiz which ai think could incorrectly identify someone with CEN, because the “symptoms” could apply to many other issues including ADHD and anxiety.

    A good self-help book for parent and those who have living parents. Main emphasis: are you a child of emotional neglect yourself?

    Read this as a result of its predecessor Running on Empty to learn the how-to handle CEN in yourself and others. Whether you have CEN or not the importance of this book to me is just more understanding of what CEN is about and how to handle it. Maybe one of your friends or work colleagues is impacted by CEN, armed with this greater understanding from this book we are in a position to be more empathetic and be helpful on how to help them. A fascinating read

    This book is coming off the heels of it's previous book, Running On Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect...meant to steer us towards the idea of learning more from CED but also learning how to engage in conversation about it, how to heal from it. The title alone grasped me. Running on empty seems to be a common phrase that most parents (if they are honest) would describe their daily lives to be....most especially when you come from a life, before kids, where you were already emotiona This book is coming off the heels of it's previous book, Running On Empty: Overcome Your Childhood Emotional Neglect...meant to steer us towards the idea of learning more from CED but also learning how to engage in conversation about it, how to heal from it. The title alone grasped me. Running on empty seems to be a common phrase that most parents (if they are honest) would describe their daily lives to be....most especially when you come from a life, before kids, where you were already emotional scarred in some way. Sometimes we don't recover or heal from it...we just become adults and have kids and put it in the backburner..and that's never a good thing. It's an interesting book with an interesting concept with a big powerful message. Relatable on such a personal level...I was able to comprehend the message. Uplifting, powerful, and extremely helpful. This guide allows you to explore what is at the root of some of our issues and gets us to face them. Then there's the coping. Practical easy to follow tips and exercises that help us work out the day to day issues of our lives. Emotional neglect is a real thing...and one that has to be tackled and overcome. Such an eye opener. Every line is impactful. You will not be bogged down with unnecessary information. You will not feel like you are being sold a cheesy message...a message with no true understanding of the people behind the content. This is not some cliche "self help" book where the author just wants to make millions off of people that will give into anything. Dr. Jonice Webb writes with much research behind her belt but also with a compassion for the people that want the help. A great useful resourceful book that I highly recommend. Thanks as always to the wonderful people of goodreads, Dr. Jonice Webb, and to Morgan James Publishing for my free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review to which I gladly and voluntarily gave.

    For some reason, Goodreads doesn't have the audio edition of this book, which is narrated by Dr. Webb herself, so I chose the Kindle Edition even though I listened to this in my car via my library's digital copy on Overdrive.

It's really quite good: straightforward, understandable, empathetic. I am particularly struck by how pervasive CEN is and how it explains so many self-destructive behaviors that never seemed to have an origin or reason since CEN parents are often caring and loving and provide for all their children's physical needs. It's just that the lack of emotional connection creates some real problems. I want to listen again to take advantage of some time to process and to really go through the exercises in identifying and talking about emotions and working through how to speak to family about that. That's the one downside to the audio: in a book like this, which requires processing and workbook exercises to get the full benefit there's little opportunity to do it right.

    I have been following Dr. Webb for some time now, with her insightful blogs and articles. But in this book her writing is her most clear, incisive and instructive. She gets to the meat of this issue, letting survivors and support people alike know what childhood emotional neglect is and what can be done about it.

Without these tools we are destined to remain forever unrequited.

    WARNING, THIS BOOK MAY HARM YOU. Why? Because this book can convince you of things that aren’t true. The author offers a one-size-fits-all explanation of everything that is wrong with your life: it is not your fault, you are just a victim of CEN (Child Emotional Neglect). It is human nature to love such a simplistic and soothing message, but don’t get fooled by this Siren. CEN may have been the explanation of the author’s problems, but it doesn’t mean it explains yours. Instead of giving readers WARNING, THIS BOOK MAY HARM YOU. Why? Because this book can convince you of things that aren’t true. The author offers a one-size-fits-all explanation of everything that is wrong with your life: it is not your fault, you are just a victim of CEN (Child Emotional Neglect). It is human nature to love such a simplistic and soothing message, but don’t get fooled by this Siren. CEN may have been the explanation of the author’s problems, but it doesn’t mean it explains yours. Instead of giving readers a clear way to know if this is true for them, the author uses the “power of suggestion” persuasion technique on the reader, inviting to remember how the reader was emotionally neglected as a child and, speaking as if this were a fact, repeatedly talking about “Your CEN”. The power of suggestion is dangerous and has been used to let people “remember” things that never happened and even confess to crimes they didn’t commit. I suspect that many normal readers will fall into this trap, because if you search enough in your memories, you will find “the evidence”, even if you were the least emotionally neglected child of the planet. After all, parents can’t be there for their children 24/7. Parents need to survive themselves, they have jobs, relations, other children and it is inevitable that there were times that they didn’t give you the attention you wanted. This is not neglect, this is a fact of life everyone has to get used to. But even if this were not so, “remembering” is still unlikely to provide you evidence for “your CEN”. Why? The stated symptoms of this so-called CEN are similar to some symptoms of what psychologists call “insecure attachment styles” and research indicates that such attachment styles are in place before children form their first explicit memories (eg. In their 3rd year). If this is true, then you can’t remember whatever your parents did to cause “your CEN”. So this book presents you with a simplistic and seductive explanation of why you have problems and it is difficult to know if this applies to you. Ok, but how can that harm you? The problem is that readers may attribute their problems to their parents, while the real causes of their problems are elsewhere. So instead of investigating further, they may feel soothed by this one-dimensional simple message and meanwhile fail to address the real causes of their problems. Furthermore, the author also wants the reader to “spread the message” to their parents and kids, implanting the idea that the goal should be that the parents go to the author’s website or that they read the author’s book (the reader is free to choose). If you get tricked into falsely believing you are a victim of CEN, then it is easy to see involving your parents may damage your relationship with them. There may be people who can benefit from this book, but you can’t really know if you are in this group. And even if you are in this group, there are other books that address such issues without the persuasion, without the potential harm and without the Multi-Level-Marketing encouragement to spread the message. Which books are these? “Attached” by Heller & Levine get into the problems that several attachment styles can have. Instead of blaming your parents, they invite you to own your problems and give you tools to improve. Same thing for “Bouncing Back” by Graham & Hanson, which has many suggestions backed by scientific evidence. If after reading this review you still want to read “Running on Empty no more”, I just hope you will not take everything at face value. Or in the parlance of the Author, that you have strong “external boundaries” in place that protect you from this book brainwashing you. Still, my recommendation would be to have a strong “physical boundary” between you and the book: avoid it!

    Blind spots revealed What an eye/heart opening experience reading this book. My therapist had sent me a questionnaire written by the author that lead me to purchasing this book. You don’t know what you don’t know until someone points it out to you. I always thought my mom didn’t respect me as a person before reading this book, which made it hard for me to show respect to her. Through reading this book I realize and understand where my moms parenting tendencies came from. And now I recognize when Blind spots revealed What an eye/heart opening experience reading this book.

The reader experiences a deeply felt empathy from the author as she gently helps you understand why you are the way you are, while avoiding the temptation of assigning blame. But, the real power of this book is in the hope and strategies presented to overcome the effects of CEN and, more importantly, not pass on the repercussions from generation to generation. My only suggestion is that I would like to see even more strategies presented. Excellent read.

    This book has really opened my eyes and finally helped me understood my feelings in a deeper level. My main focus was learning about my CEN parents and healing my emotional neglect. I recommend this book to anyone who has felt neglected/miss understood/lonely in their childhood. The book gives great examples and techniques on how to cope with that.

    Great explanation of what to do if you suffer from Childhood Emotional Neglect. I like how there were examples that showed me how to start recognizing my child's emotional needs and nurture them so I don't repeat the invisible pattern and leave him hollow for his own adult relationships.
