Bradshaw, John

Bradshaw, John,

1602–59, English regicide judge. In 1649 he was made president of the parliamentary commission to try Charles I, other lawyers of greater prominence having refused the position. For a short time he was rewarded with honors and offices and acted (1649–53) as president of the council of state. He was forced to retire when Oliver Cromwell dissolved the council, and he became an opponent of the Protectorate.

Bradshaw, John

(1933–  ) counselor, lecturer, author; born in Houston, Texas. He studied for the Roman Catholic priesthood (1955–63) but left the seminary to become a high school teacher, then a counselor. He became well known in 1986 through the Public Broadcasting System series "Bradshaw On—The Family" and the book of the same title. His concept of reparenting one's "inner child" traumatized by dysfunctional family relationships won him a wide following.
