Everyone knows someone who won't go home again. In Cutoffs, esteemed counselor Carol Netzer speaks to families who experience the intense pain of cutoffs — a decisive leave-taking, a sudden end to a family relation. Drawing on her personal and professional experience, Netzer constructs a comprehensive framework for understanding the behavior which results in final separation and shows how symptoms can be recognized and hopefully prevented or repaired once they have occurred.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The subtitle is deceiving. Netzer discusses how family relationships fracture and dysfunctional patterns emerge, but she has few solutions for the problem. The book is composed of poorly edited and poorly organized case studies that demonstrate ways one can "cut off" from one's family of origin. Although the first-time author, a psychotherapist, presents valid insight into the reasons one might choose to end a family relationship?and she includes a valuable perspective on "repressed memory" syndrome?she only identifies the problem. Two chapters on reconstruction are sorely inadequate and do not offer a strategy for resolving this aspect of family dysfunction.?A. Arro Smith, San Marcos P.L., Tex.

The symptoms and solutions of those who cut off family relationships are covered in a title which focuses on both the symptoms and techniques for reconstructing relationships. Chapters focus on both common reasons for cutting off and the process of rebuilding bridges. -- Midwest Book Review
