Parents make enormous sacrifices helping children become healthy and autonomous adults. And when children are older, popular wisdom advises parents to let go, disconnect, and bite their tongues. But increasing life spans mean that parents and children can spend as many as five or six decades as adults together: actively parenting adult children is a reality for many families. Dr. Ruth Nemzoff--a leading expert in family dynamics--empowers parents to create close relationships with their adult children, while respecting their independence. Based on personal stories as well as advice that she has accrued from years of coaching, this lively and readable book shows parents how to: -communicate at long distances -discuss financial issues without using money as a form of control -speak up when disapproving of an adult child's partner or childrearing practices -handle adult children's career choices or other midlife changes -navigate an adult child's interreligious, interracial or same sex relationships No other book treats the challenges of parent and adult offspring relationships as part and parcel of a healthy family dynamic. This practical lessons of Don't Bite Your Tongue will help parents play a vital and positive role in their children's lives.
Warum erzeugt Gewalt wieder Gewalt? Warum geraten manche Menschen immer wieder in destruktive Paarbeziehungen, sei es als Opfer oder als Täter? Wie die Spirale der Gewalt in Gang gesetzt und aufrechterhalten wird, zeigt dieses Buch in differenzierter Weise. Gewalt in Paarbeziehungen ist ein ebenso weit verbreitetes wie tabuisiertes Phänomen in unserer »zivilisierten« Gesellschaft. Einer großen Untersuchung nach hat jede vierte Frau schon einmal tätliche Übergriffe ihres Partners erfahren müssen. Und auch Männer haben offenbar reichlich unter häuslichen Aggressionen zu leiden; verbale und psychische Attacken überwiegen in diesem Fall die rein physische Gewalt. Das Buch beschäftigt sich mit der Entstehung und mit den Auswirkungen destruktiver Beziehungsmuster. Es zeigt, wie aus selbst erlebter Gewalt oder Vernachlässigung mit dem zentralen Gefühl der eigenen Machtlosigkeit Übergriffshandlungen auf spätere nahe Bezugspersonen hervorgehen. PsychotherapeutInnen und psychologische BeraterInnen, die mit einzelnen Klienten oder mit Paaren arbeiten, sollten die Mechanismen intimer Gewalt kennen, um wirksam behandeln oder beraten zu können.
