Broken relationships between adult children and their parents is a widespread phenomenon. While the parent-child attachment relationship is of critical importance for the child in the early years of life, the parent-child relationship continues to be a source of great importance over the course of the individual’s life span for both the child and the parent. For adults and adult children who are estranged/alienated from each other, the pain and dissatisfaction never fully go away. Despite the prevalence of the problem of ruptured relationships, there are few resources available for mental health professionals working with this population. This book provides a tool for clinicians to turn to when they are working with adult children and their parents seeking to resolve conflict, improve communication, and enhance their relationships.

The excellence of God s word and grace helps us to be strong and wiser in our beliefs and wear the appropriate armor of righteousness. It also shares the unfeigned love by the Holy Spirit. Without the word the outer man will soon perish, and the inner man is renewed. Your word is forever and it gives us favors by God and his strength. Thank you for letting your word be manifested in our consciences. It offers life eternally, good health, protection, and light unto our path. Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven and established upon the earth. Your word enlarges our heart with joy and peace. We may be troubled, but we don t have to live in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed. We are thankful that your death worketh life for us. It is because of the written word that we believe in Jesus. We give thanks for being of the same spirit. Your word also worketh through repentance to salvation. It encourages us to walk upright in a godly manner. In conclusion, we know if we are in the world that worketh death. We are grateful our body is your earthly treasure. Amen.

Are you one of those who says the Bible is boring or you don't understand it? If so, then this book is for you. Biblical stories are like fables and fairy tales, in that they are action stories that leap from one action to another without any long tiresome descriptive paragraphs. Action stories are not only for children, but are also enjoyed by adults of all ages. True, in the Biblical stories, sometimes all we get is the bare outline, which could do with a bit of filling in to bring them into focus. Try following the lives of the Patriarchs and see how human they were, sometimes making wrong choices, sometimes heroic in extreme ... read on ...

"Jacob Leisler ... from Frankfort, came to New Netherland a soldier in the West India Company's service in 1660. He embarked in the ship Otter from Amsterdam, the 27th of April of that year. There was a tradition among his descendants that he came originally from France, and a vague report, a hundred years or so ago in New York, that he was Swiss. It is more likely that he was born in Frankfort, and was, therefore a native of Germany."--Page 7. On 11 April 1663 Jacob married Elsje Tymens, widow of Pieter (Cornelisen) Vander Veen and daughter of Tymens (Thymens) and Marritje Janszen. She was born in New Amsterdam. Jacob Leisler and his son-in-law Jacob Milborne " ... were convicted and attainted of high treason ... and sentenced to death. They were executed together [in what is now present day New York City] near the site of the present Hall of Records, on Saturday, May 16, 1691 ..."--Page 8. "Elsje Tymens, the widow of Jacob Leisler, survived him some 13 or 14 years. She was living Sept. 17, 1704, at which date she was a sponsor at the baptism of Elizabeth, dau. of Barent Reinders."--Page 10.

Boxing. The Sport of Kings. And for every king, there are kingmakers and princes, determined heirs and ruthless pretenders to the throne. Boxers may enter the ring alone, but behind them are their families, many of whom have spent a career in the fight game themselves. And all are caught up in this most beautiful but brutal of sports. Beautiful Brutality is the first book to examine the world of boxing from the perspective of family. With unprecedented access to the likes of the Calzaghes, Mayweathers, Hattons and Khans, Sky Sports boxing expert Adam Smith lays bare the raw emotion at the heart of the sport. How does it feel when your son is taking a pummelling? Can a father make rational judgements from the corner of the ring, in the frenzied atmosphere of a fight? And how much strength does a boxer take from his family, or the family figures that so many trainers and promoters become? Passionate, hard-hitting and with astonishing revelations about the world of boxing, Beautiful Brutality is written from the heart, by an author with a unique knowledge and experience of the fight game.

After Jack Clapper's untimely death, his son Barry, and daughter-in-law, Felicity, remained under a cloud of suspicion. Jack had been very controlling and although he had promised to hand the Clapper's Cove farm over to his son one day, he still held the reins at age seventy-six. Felicity had also experienced issues with him. Felicity and Barry both had fertility problems, and although treated, they didn't have any children. When Barry died suddenly, three young people in their early twenties attended his funeral. They'd recently learned Barry was their biological father, but only Ken, who closely resembled Barry, revealed his identity to Felicity on the day of the funeral. The three half siblings didn't know of each other, and Barry died without knowing he'd fathered three children--Rose Louise, a motel manager; Ken, a farmer, and Luke, a landscape gardener. They were born to unrelated mothers in diverse circumstances and grew up in different towns. Each of them faced challenges growing up, as two of them were raised in single-parent families in an era when single mothers were expected to give up their babies for adoption. They met each other while in their early twenties, but they, at first, were unaware they share the same father. One by one, Felicity learned of their existence--a ready-made family she'd always longed to have who welcomed her into their lives. Romance flourished and resulted in three marriages. Felicity value-added to the Clapper's Cove farm by building holiday cottages for people with disabilities. When tragedy struck unexpectedly, the remaining half siblings learned of their relationship to Barry and provided family support to Felicity and one another. Eventually, Felicity and Barry were exonerated of any involvement in Jack Clapper's death when the circumstances were revealed publicly in a surprising way.

r s1mily Ties provides a vivid and accessible introduction to the dynamics of life in English families of all ranks from the mid-sixteenth century to the end of World War I. Sections on methods, approaches and sources allow readers new to the study of the past to explore some of the historian's fundamental concerns: cause and effect; continuity and change and the nature and reliability of evidence. The chronological and thematic organization of the book enables readers to examine a number of sub-themes such as the history of childhood or of marriage. Combining extensive contemporary quotations and an unusual variety of illustrations with a wide range of written and material sources, the book provides a fascinating insight into the history of the family and encourages the reader to become a sceptical and imaginative investigator, prepared to venture beyond the historian's traditional documentary sources.

This advanced textbook covers issues of family ties and aging broadly, the goal being to provide an integrated and thorough representation of what we know from the current research. Whereas books on families and aging have traditionally focused on ties to a spouse and to children and grandchildren, Family Ties & Aging is more extensive and more reflective of contemporary society. The text includes groups and relationships that typically receive short shrift, exploring such neglected populations as single, divorced, and childless older people and their family relationships, as well as sibling relationships among the elderly, live-in partnerships not formalized by marriage, and the kinds of family ties forged by gay and lesbian persons over the life course. The book weaves the vast range of information we now have about the many facets of family relationships and aging into a critical, comprehensive, and integrated whole.

With so many individuals, couples, and families now living in the United States from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds, there are various communication styles among the different ethnic groups that play a key role in determining the success and failure of today's marriages and family relationships. Throughout the years of personal struggles as a formal political refugee from Southeast Asia, the author survived many levels of challenges, such as escaping from Laos to Thailand to be freed from political persecution, surviving in a refugee camp from sicknesses and hunger, coming to America with zero English skill, in order to become a language instructor, marriage and family counselor, and Mien language and cultural consultant. The combined years of his research and personal experiences in working with individuals, couples, and families from different cultural, social, and educational settings, he has the honor and privilege to write this book, with practical implications for individuals, couples, parents, pastors, community leaders, counselors, educators, and researchers.

An accompanying Web site,, offers additional participation and interaction in the process of doing theory and making science.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Over the past two decades considerable progress has been made in developing specialist psychosocial treatments for borderline personality disorder (BPD), yet the majority of people with BPD receive treatment within generalist mental health services, rather than specialist treatment centres. This is a book for general mental health professionals who treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It offers practical guidance on how to help people with BPD with advice based on research evidence. After a discussion of the symptoms of BPD, the authors review all the generalist treatment interventions that have resulted in good outcomes in randomised controlled trials, when compared with specialist treatments, and summarise the effective components of these interventions. The treatment strategies are organised into a structured approach called Structured Clinical Management (SCM), which can be delivered by general mental health professionals without extensive additional training. The heart of the book outlines the principles underpinning SCM and offers a step-by-step guide to the clinical intervention. Practitioners can learn the interventions easily and develop more confidence in treating people with BPD. In addition, a chapter is devoted to how to help families - an issue commonly neglected when treating patients with BPD. Finally the authors discuss the top 10 strategies for delivering treatment and outline how the general mental health clinician can deliver these strategies competently.
