Overview

Having developed their techniques during years of therapeutic work with adopted children and their families, Lacher, Nichols, and May (all with the Family Attachment and Counseling Center of Minnesota) present "Family Attachment Narrative Therapy," which uses stories to help parents communicate and connect with their troubled children. Written as a "how to" guide for parents, the concepts are illustrated through a story of fictional parents and their adopted child. Coverage includes the formation of the child's inner working model; discovering the child's unique model and piecing together the meaning of behavior; and telling the narratives that bond, heal, and teach. Additional chapters focus on four specific categories of parent narrative—claiming, trauma, developmental, and successful child. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
