Editorial Reviews

Adoption UK - Jackie Grimes
"I have been a fan of Bryan Post for many years now and have read all his previous books. His new book takes his particular approach to adoptive parenting and repackages it in a way that is more accessible to parents than some of his previous work" "...I would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with the demands of parenting adopted children wants to try something new. It is easy to read and the format makes it simple to target specific behaviors."
www.amazon.com - Dawn Alabama
"This book is a huge blessing and help in raising children (any children), especially those with any type of trauma in their background. I plan to re-read it as it is so packed full of helpful advice and information. It doesn't take an everything is rosy approach, nor a black and white approach, but is thoroughly Christian and practical. It helps parent/caregivers to get behind the "why" of the undesirable behaviors that are driving them crazy and to avoid making them even worse..."

"This book will teach you about your own stress reactions, and how you can respond more effectively to your children from your own inner strength with compassionate understanding rather than reacting out of your fear." -Myla Kabat-Zinn, co-author of Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting.

"Awesome! As a psychologist who has worked in school settings, I grew to really hate behavior plans! The human experience is far more complex than simple reward and punishment. This book provides a guide for understanding behaviors based on relational elements which is the true "cure". Rather than simply trying to cover up the problem with an outward appearance of "good behavior"..."

Meet the Author

Bryan Post is one of America’s foremost child behavior experts and founder of the Post Institute for Family-Centered Therapy. The Post Institute works with adults, children and families struggling with early life trauma and the impact on the development of the mind/body system. A renowned clinician, lecturer, and author, Bryan has traveled throughout the world providing expert treatment and consultation. An internationally recognized specialist in the treatment of emotional and behavioral disturbance, he specializes in a holistic family-based treatment approach that addresses the underlying interactive dynamics of the entire family.

Bryan has been researching child behavior and finding solutions for a small niche of kids "with whom nothing works". He has worked in the trenches for the last 15 years with children in the last resort category, as well as training parents and professionals in a new paradigm of parenting which he calls The Stress Model. This new model is in direct opposition to traditional parenting and societal behavior modification programming, which he considers as beyond consequences, logic and control.

A maverick in the mental health field, Bryan broke from traditional teachings in the late 1990s and developed a theoretical model of behavior which he coined the Stress Model. When fully understood and applied, this can reveal underlying unconscious expressive states which can transform relationship dynamics. From the Stress Model theory he has gone on to develop both Family-Centered Regulatory Parenting and Regulatory Therapy which both have been taught at the university level. These rapid results programs have been changing the lives of struggling adults, parents, and families for over fifteen years.

He holds three degrees in the field of social work: a Bachelors of Social Work degree from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma; a Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Texas at Arlington; and a Doctoral degree in Social Work from Columbus University School of Public Administration.

A retired Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Bryan continues spreading his loved based parenting message through his lecturing and writing. He lives with his family in Oklahoma. He also enjoys starting new business ventures.
