9780132696142: Parenting Toward Solutions: How Parents Can Use Skills They Already Have to Raise Responsible, Loving Kids

This resource aims to help parents find the abilities they need to change the relationship with their children, and empower them to solve their own problems. Based on Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, a counselling model that focuses on times when a specific problem does not occur instead of why it happens, the book invites parents to discover when they have solved other problems in the workplace, in friendships, and elsewhere outside the home. It then shows parents how to apply their solutions to the situation of concern in the home.
