Doherty, a family therapist for more than 20 years, focuses on strengthening family relationships by creating intentional rituals that will help the family define itself. Doherty acknowledges the various family structures (two-parent, single-parent, stepparent, and extended families) in today's culture and presents guidelines to help families of all types. He examines opportunities for "rituals of connection" during routine activities such as mealtimes or during vacations and "rituals of celebration" for events such as birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas. His work concludes with suggestions for implementing rituals and a useful bibliography. This unique if somewhat narrow work is recommended for public library parenting collections.?Kay L.
