From the Publisher"Therapy with Single Parents: A Social Constructionist Approach is an indispensable resource for professional counselors working with single-parent families, school guidance counselors, and educators who teach in the areas of Social Studies, Sociology, Psychology, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, and Education. Authored by professionals with backgrounds in practice and teaching, this book will have wide appeal. While the authors by no means ignore the emotional and financial problems often experienced by members of single-parent families, they present a more balanced view - based on recent, sound methodological research - of the single-parent family as "a viable, healthy family form." This is a welcome and revolutionary claim that challenges entrenched social stereotypes."
- Tatjana Chorney in Journal of Association for Research on Mothering
"This book provides practical information, using common language for clinicians and others who work with single parents/systems…This book strives to depict single parenthood as a viable family structure instead of a deficit position…I would recommend this book to therapists working with single parents…one of the first of its kind to address the unique experiences of single parents and should be applauded."
