"What happens to those disturbed parent/child relationships once everybody's an adult? And what can be done about them? Find out here! An enlightening look at a long- neglected topic." - Thomas W. Phelan, PhD, author of 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2--12 "Although the relationship between childhood and adulthood has been explored for decades, this book, with its diverse authors and perspectives, deepens and enriches that scholarship and research. The authors not only show the deleterious interpersonal effects of 'poisonous parenting' on children and their future adult relationships, they extend their analysis beyond the interpersonal to the cultural, giving a balanced analysis to this critical discussion. The book will be an invaluable resource for the practicing clinician and an excellent biblio-therapeutic resource for clients. I loved it and highly recommend it." - Harville Hendrix, PhD, coauthor with Helen LaKelly Hunt of Giving the Love That Heals: A Guide for Parents "A clinically engaging and useful book on understanding, identifying and dealing with the effects of difficult and negative parenting. Clinicians will appreciate the conceptual and practical suggestions for helping their clients with these issues." - James H. Bray, PhD, coauthor of Stepfamilies: Love, Marriage, and Parenting in the First Decade and past president of the American Psychological Association
