This book gives a complete overview of the theory, practice, and research of an emotion-centered, humanistic approach to supporting the parents of individuals who struggle with any mental health challenge. The book conveys an unyielding belief in parents’ motivation and ability to heal the parent-child relationship and help their child (young, adolescent, or adult child) through their struggles. Drawing on the most current understanding of emotions and human development, the book clearly outlines a central role for parents in treating and preventing mental health difficulties in their families. The many examples provide a vivid and emotionally moving portrait of the power of parents if we only support them to find their way.
