For each of us, there is a connection between our early family dynamics and experiences and our current attitudes and decisions.

In her signature straightforward style, with real-life examples, Dr. Laura shows you what you will gain by not being satisfied with an identity as a victim, or even as a survivor -- you should strive to be a victor!
In Bad Childhood -- Good Life, Dr. Laura will guide you to accept the truth of the assaults on your psyche and soul, understand your unique coping style and how it impacts your daily thoughts and actions, and help you embrace a life of more peace and happiness.
Exploring how the past influences the present, the author discusses how to understand each individual's unique coping style and how to tap into the extraordinary quality of human spirit that will create the transition from victim to victor.
