Overview

Proven ways to create a more loving family

Research proves that happy families are good for health, longevity, peace of mind, productivity, and success. In The Secrets of Happy Families, Scott Haltzman offers an original approach to building family contentment that works for families of all ethnicities and make-ups–two-parent, single-parent, blended, childless, or same-sex couple. He provides a "positive psychology" way of solving family problems through strategy and leadership, including knowing and accepting who you are, taking a leadership role in loving and united relationships, building a network of support in extended families and communities, and making quality time for fun, adventures, holidays, and rituals.

Drawing on more than 1200 family-life questionnaires, psychological research, and his own experience as a clinician, Haltzman (The Secrets of Happily Married Women) provides the basic ingredients for creating happy families regardless of sexual, cultural, or ethnic identification. His strategies include sticking together, establishing values, and making time for fun and rituals, interwoven with case studies, checklists, and ideas for starting points. An authoritative book on a timely subject for mental-health professionals and parents looking to strengthen familial bonds.
