Changes That Heal: Four Practical Steps to a Happier, Healthier You by renowned psychologist Dr. Henry Cloud offers a down-to-earth plan to help you recover from the wounds of the past and grow more and more into the image of God. It takes you step-by-step through the four basic tasks of becoming a mature, healthy Christian:

  • Bonding to others
  • Separating from others
  • Sorting out good and bad in ourselves and others
  • Becoming an adult

Changes That Heal not only explains and describes each task, it also identifies the problems that result when one fails to accomplish that task, and shows you what changes to make in your life in order to bring about healing.

Also available, the Changes That Heal Workbook (sold separately). This companion workbook to the bestselling book offers a hands-on approach to working through the four practical steps to a happier, healthier you.


“The four main points of Changes That Heal can help any person understand more who they are and how they relate to others. The book is well-written, broken into understandable sections, and gives you something to think about at every turn. The author pulls from many people’s life experiences, and there are many examples of everyday people that you can relate to. This book is a must read.”
M. Moody – Orlando, FL

“I found Changes That Heal very helpful in doing an inventory of myself and identifying potential origins of behaviors that I would like to change in my life. Dr. Cloud has a very readable style. He incorporates biblical truths into his teaching in a way that makes complete sense. His writing confirms that with the proper guidance, the Bible is the best self-help book ever written!

“This book really helps you understand how you came to be who you are, how you relate to others, why you think the way you do and look at relationships the way you do. It is really enlightening and helps you release past hurts and make better choices in your relationships (not just with significant other, but family, friends, co-workers) going forward.”
