About the Author:

Married for over 25 years with two adult children, John and Karen Louis have been in full time church ministry service since 1985, and have been based in Asia since 1988. They both hold a Masters in Counselling from Monash University of Melbourne, Australia, and are members of professional associations in the US and Singapore. As founders of Movie Therapy, John and Karen incorporate the use of multi-media in workshops for churches as well as secular organisations, and have trained marriage and parenting educators from around the world. John is a certified Schema Therapist and member of the International Society for Schema Therapy (ISST), having been trained by Dr. Jeffrey Young, the founder of Schema Therapy, while Karen is a certified Solution Focused Therapist.

Review:

In a world of too much information, Good Enough Parenting teaches parents how to MEET CORE NEEDS, and, at the same time, how to avoid passing down their own dysfunctional behaviors. Schema Therapy has been successful with adults, but I have always wanted to see someone do something on preventing schemas, or Lifetraps, in children, and here it is! --Dr Jeffrey Young, Dept of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York Founder, Schema Therapy

This ground-breaking book will help parents raise healthier children, and when they grow up, healthier and more successful adults. I highly recommend it. --Charles L Whitfield, MD, International bestselling author, Healing the Child Within ; Wisdom to Know the Difference: Core Issues in Relationships, Recovery and Living
