Description - Nurturing Resilience in Our Children by Robert B. Brooks

Through their clinical work and through over a thousand seminars, clinical child psychologists and house authors, Robert Brooks, Ph.D. and Sam Goldstein, Ph.D. have heard hundreds of questions raised by parents. And now, Brooks and Goldstein have compiled a Q&A book based on the most commonly asked questions raised by parents titled Nurturing Resilience in Our Children, which will be published simultaneously with the paperback edition of their successful book, Raising Resilient Children. Many of the questions posed in this book are related to the themes of resilience and self-esteem, so there is a natural tie-in with Raising Resilient Children. In Nurturing Resilience in Our Children, the authors expand and apply their model of resilience to offer reasoned, reasonable, and practical responses to these commonly asked questions. These answers are framed within the concept of resilience, which touches on many features of parenting, including: Helping children feel special and appreciated; Teaching children how to solve problems and make decisions; Encouraging children to be more reasonable and respectful; Enabling children to develop empathy and handle mistakes and frustrations more effectively; Teaching self-discipline, self-control, and interpersonal skills; Though many readers of Raising Resilient Children will seek out this book of questions and answers, Nurturing Resilience in Our Children is in many ways a stand-alone book; each chapter in the new book will provide an overview of the specific concept being discussed so that first-time readers of their work will not only benefit from the book but be motivated to seek out Raising Resilient Children.
