About the Author:

Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., has spent more than thirty years as an educator and therapist, specializing in working with couples, teaching marital therapy to therapists, and conducting couples workshops across the country. Dr. Hendrix is the creator of Imago Relationship Therapy, which is known and practiced internationally; and the cofounder, with his wife Helen Hunt, and president of the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy, based in Winter Park, Florida. He is the author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples, and Keeping the Love You Find: A Guide for Singles, and has coauthored, with Helen, The Personal Companion: Meditations and Exercises for Keeping the Love You Find and The Couples Companion: Meditations and Exercises for Getting the Love You Want.

From Library Journal:

This parenting compendium reads much like a daily devotional, which might be an advantage for busy parents. Each month has a general theme, with each day focusing on concrete exercises or meditations. The authors, both family therapists, cofounded the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy in 1984; Hendrix is a frequent talk show guest. Their emphasis is on how to stay healthily connected, both with children and with the other parenting partner. Another main tenet is that the child is a separate individual, not an extension of the parent. The impact of the parenting the parents received is also addressed. While readers will find it helpful to be familiar with the authors' earlier book (Giving the Love That Heals, LJ 10/15/97), a glossary is included that defines their main ideas. The examples and scenarios tend to be somewhat simplistic, and prayers and references to diverse deities may be off-putting to some. Similarly, the repetitive inclusiveness of different types of family structures becomes tedious. An optional purchase for public libraries.AMargaret Cardwell, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Clarkston
