The only expectation one can have when returning to visit a childhood home is to be deeply moved in the most unexpected ways. For millions of Americans each year, that journey conjures many emotions, offering a psychological exploration unlike any other. This book describes the experiences of adults who visit a childhood home and the psychology behind their visits. Seeing the buildings, schools, parks and playgrounds from their past helps to establish the psychological and emotional link between the child in the old photographs and the person they are today.
