9780345344564: Families: Crisis and Caring

COMPASSIONATE, WISE ADVICE ON THE TOUGHEST PROBLEMS FACING PARENTS TODAY.
 
In this invaluable source of information and inspiration, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton shares the insight, strength, and sheer love of children that have made him a national treasure.
 
Families today are in transition and the parents of young children can no longer simply look to the experiences of their own parents for guidance in our rapidly changing world. Drawing on the experiences of five of the real families who appeared on his cable television series “What Every Baby Knows,” Dr. Brazelton now tackles such contemporary issues and crises as divorce and stepparenting, the involved father, parental rivalry, grandparenting, infertility, loss of a parent, adoption, and illness in the family.
 
Dr. Brazelton illustrates each issue dramatically, giving us an intimate look at the lives and hearts of the families involved. After drawing deft, vivid profiles of the parents, children, and grandparents, Brazelton shows how each crisis upsets the stability of the family, how each member copes with the problem, and, most importantly, how the family as a whole eventually regains its balance and continues to grow. In the concluding chapter, “When to Seek Help,” Brazelton offers his advice on when, why, and how an overwhelmed family can reach out for professional assistance in crisis-solving.
 
In analyzing these crises and pointing to solutions, Brazelton writes with the warm reassurance and candor that have made him a trusted guide for parents and physicians alike.
 
“Wise and instructive.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Brazelton’s suggestions on communication, time management, and family life are genuinely helpful.”—Booklist

About the Author:

T. Berry Brazelton, MD, is professor of pediatrics emeritus at Harvard Medical School. He founded the Child Development Unit at the Boston Children’s Hospital Medical Center. From 1970 to 1972, he was chairman of the Child Development Section of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Brazelton’s Neonatal Behavioral Assessment is now in use in twenty research centers in the United States and several foreign countries. Among his many books are Infants and Mothers, On Becoming a Family, Working and Caring, and What Every Baby Knows. In 1988, Dr. Brazelton received the American Medical Writers Association Annual Book Award.

From Publishers Weekly:

Pediatrician Brazelton, chief of the child development unit at Boston Children's Hospital and a professor at Harvard Medical School, is famed for his efforts to promote the welfare of children and parents. Drawn from the TV series based on his book, What Every Baby Knows , this guide focuses on the members of five families whose experiences readers follow from their initial consultations with Brazelton through succeeding visits. Parents and children describe steps in handling problems with the help of the author's compassionate and practical advice. Their stories show, for example, that caring for each other is the key to enduring crises caused by the death of a parent or child. Also covered in this wise and instructive book are infertility, disharmony in step-families, the suffering of family and patient when a six-year-old is stricken by leukemia. Photos not seen by PW. First serial to Family Circle; Literary Guild alternate.
