I, Joseph F. Dumond, was born in 1958 and raised a Catholic. In 1978, after graduating from Orangeville High School in Ontario, Canada; I married my high school sweetheart, Barbara. We had our daughter in 1981, our son in 1982 and then later, our third child�another son, in 1990.
In 1982, I first heard Herbert Armstrong teaching about the Sabbath on my car radio late one night on my way to work in Eastern Ontario. A few days later, I heard him again as I left from work. I wrote in to request some material and found myself compelled to prove what he said about the Sabbath wrong. I worked seven days a week as a foreman supervising natural gas pipeline workers. There was no way I could possibly take a day off to attend church on Saturday. But finally, after six months of solid day and night study, I could no longer discount just how clear Yehovah has always been on this matter and that we all should be keeping the Sabbath. I was forced to conclude the seventh day Saturday Sabbath had never changed and that it was the Catholic Church that was to blame for changing the Saturday Sabbath to a Sunday�a counterfeit Sabbath which all Christian churches have continued to observe once the Catholic mold was cast and the heretical dye set.
When Yehovah opened a door, I began to attend the Worldwide Church of God and not long after my first visit, I was told about the Holy Days. It was through those Holy Days�all of which are found in Leviticus 23�that I was able to learn of Yehovah�s divinely inspired plan for mankind and how it was all to come together. For quite some time thereafter, I operated under the mistaken conviction I knew of His plan in full in this regard until I came to understand the Sabbatical Years�both past and future. The last Sabbatical Year was from Aviv (March-April) 2009�Aviv 2010. This was also the first one I had ever kept.
I began to study in earnest each week, while attending church regularly, from that moment forward (from 1982 until 1994). I then had to leave the Worldwide Church of God because, somewhere along the way, they were starting to bear a striking resemblance to the Catholic Church I had already walked away from in 1982. It was also at this time that I was told all I had learned in the World Wide Church of God, was �wrong.�
So, for the next two years I no longer attended any church and went back to working seven days a week. Then, in 1996, as the Holy Days were fast approaching, I felt a deep desire to start keeping the Sabbath and the Holy Days once again. Not having the remotest clue this time where to go or who to turn to, I began to keep the Holy Days myself by venturing out in my car, parking at the end of a dead end road and praying and crying out to Yehovah with all my heart.
During this time, I also had to rethink everything I understood to be true up until that point. I had to do this without using any church literature from any group and without listening to any pre-canned sermons or scholarly lectures. I had to prove the Sabbath by the Bible itself and other credible reference materials�including applicable encyclopedia volumes. It was while I was engaged in this period of intense study that I learned of Noah�s Ark, the Red Sea Crossing, Jabal

Premise - psychological "wounding" is epidemic in America because of an unseen inherited cycle of ineffective parenting and ignorance. This book describes the wounds, what they mean, and what to do about them.
This third edition (6/2010) will introduce you to your inner family, and who leads it in calm and crisis times. If you don’t know who comprises your inner crew or who’s in charge of them, you may be living life as a hostage to a false self and not know it. If so, you’re probably living well below your potential, and may also be wounding kids in your life without meaning to. The rest of the book outlines an effective way to reduce any significant wounds, and live a calmer, more authentic, productive, satisfying life.
Notice your reaction to these proposals and to the book´s title. I suspect you think “Well I am running my life!” Sure - but have you ever thought about who “I” is?
Reality check: Have you ever had experiences like these?
• Blowing hot and cold about someone or something?
• Saying “On one hand,… and on the other…”?
• Obsessively second-guessing (doubting) an important decision you’ve made?
• Having “discussions” or "arguments" with yourself inside your head?
• An “inner voice” ceaselessly berating you for being stupid, dumb, weird, or unlovable?
• Loved and hated someone at the same time?
• Wanted to do something and simultaneously not wanted to do it?
• Done something impulsive and later thought “What got into me?”
• Known people who seemed two-faced, talked out of both sides of their mouth, and “like two different people”?
• Felt “young” when around an authority figure or perhaps a critical parent?
yellow or mean streak, a blue mood a musical side, a silver tongue, or a way with kids?
These are everyday signs of an invisible condition that shapes the lives of you and everyone you know. It’s based on a marvelous survival feature of our human neural system recently called multiplicity: our brain’s wired-in ability to respond to childhood environmental threat by fragmenting into regions with special abilities.
Using radiographic PET scans, we’re the first generation in history to be able to see these regions operating concurrently. The unitary experience of “I see my child laugh” involves many regions of your brain at once without your knowing it. So does everything you do!
This book results from my professionally studying and practicing inner family therapy ("parts work") since 1992. It describes what I’ve come to believe without question about average women and men like you:
Normal people have personalities that are composed of a group of subselves or parts, like members of an orchestra or athletic team. Each subself has it’s own talent or gift, it’s own values, goals, and limitations. Our inner families of subselves can range from harmonious to chaotic in calm and crisis times.
The nature of our subselves and the relationships among them are determined in the first several years of life of average kids. If kids are raised in a high-nurturance environment, their inner family is much more apt to be harmonious and led (eventually) by a talented true Self (capital “S”). When you feel some mix of calm, centered, energized, light, focused, resilient, up, grounded, relaxed, alert, aware, alive serene, purposeful, and clear, your true Self is probably leading your inner family of subselves (personality).
How often have you felt that way, recently?
Most of us grow up in moderate to low-nurturance homes, which feels normal. The unintended result is the early development of a set of subselves which control our thoughts and actions without our knowing it – a false self.
If your life is significantly controlled by a false self, (1) you won’t know it, and (2) you’ll have persistent patterns of health, relationship, and other problems. These occur largely because false-selves unintentionally cause a mix of psychological wounds:
• Excessive shame, guilts, and fears; The extreme version of this psychological wounding is Multiple Personality Disorder, now called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). It’s estimated that about 5% of Americans have this major disability.
• Significant reality distortions, like denials, repressions, exaggerations, minimizations, idealizations, and projections;
• Major trust distortions: trusting too easily, or not enough.
These wounds combine for some people to cause…
• Difficulty bonding (attaching psychologically and spiritually) with some or all other people, and difficulty feeling, expressing, and/or receiving love. The clinical name for this tragic condition is "Reactive Attachment Disorder" (RAD).
You may wonder whether you’re being covertly controlled by a false self. Here are common behavioral traits of people whose wise true Self (capital “S”) is often disabled.
Pause and notice your thoughts and emotions now. Is your true Self leading your inner family of subselves? If not, who is? If you have a partner, which subselves are leading her or his personality in calm and conflictual times? What would your relationships be like if both of you were guided by your wise true Selves and Higher Power?
Part 1 of this book introduces you to your inner family and the six false-self wounds.
Part 2 describes an effective way to reduce the wounds: "parts work," or "inner-family therapy."
Part 3 offers 12 worksheets to help self-assess for wounds, how to "score them," and suggestions for next steps.
Part 4 provides selected recovery resources, including inspirations, readings, and a thorough index.

As a registered nurse for the last 28 years, my primary clinical expertise has been working in the pre-hospital environment as a flight nurse and a paramedic, as well as continuing to work in a variety of clinical areas which include the emergency department, pediatrics and endoscopy. My extensive clinical background has also given me the opportunity to work as a legal nurse consultant with one of the largest law firms in Arizona. As an EMS educator and program director of paramedic training programs for the last 20 years and most recently as the National Clinical Educator for one of the largest air medical transport companies, I truly enjoy teaching in a simple manner as to assure that students do have a strong basic understanding in making critical care decisions and that they will be providing the highest quality of patient care beginning from the least to the most invasive management of care for the patients they are transporting. My goal as a professional and as an EMS educator has always been and will continue to encourage students to have the desire to learn and grow in their profession, as well as contribute to EMS in a way that inspires positive change.
