Of the various family relationship resources I have reviewed, this is one of the best. My summary does not do justice to the tone, examples and information presented by the authors. They present the reader with a compassionate understanding of the teenager’s developmental work to become an adult. Through explanation and example, the authors present the CALM skills helpful to maintaining a positive relationship in even the most
difficult of situations. The chapter titles listed below show the range of topics reviewed.

Chapter 2
