How s Your Family Really Doing 10 Keys to a Happy Loving Family

Author: PhD and Don MacMannis

Genre: Family & Relationships

For most people, family is valued above all else. But the kind of family we want and the family we’ve created can be as different as night and day. Families can be our greatest comfort or the source of our deepest pain. Unprecedented levels of stress, massive cultural shifts, and new technologies challenge the way we live. We are flooded with more information and one-size-fits-all solutions than anyone can sort through, and it is little wonder parents feel at a loss for answers when their families are in crisis. Because most of us haven’t had classes in how to be a family, Don MacMannis, Ph.D., and Debra Manchester MacMannis, M.S.W., have written How’s Your Family Really Doing? 10 Keys to a Happy Loving Family (Two Harbors Press, $15.95), a guidebook that synthesizes contributions from family studies, psychological and brain research, systems theory and spirituality. The book highlights the ten essential keys that define successful families and provides practical tools to personalize every reader’s experience. As a society, we are relentlessly inundated with “how to books” that typically focus on symptoms that one or more family members are experiencing- anxiety, depression, school problems, out of control behaviors, addictions, etc. But parents buying books about fixing specific problems are often frustrated when trying new techniques without success. That’s because these books fail to include what else may be going on in the family that can create or maintain problem behaviors. In contrast, How’s Your Family Really Doing? provides the reader with a checklist of the most important, underlying “family factors” that can add to their efforts at change. The book begins with a 50-point questionnaire—the Current Family Assessment—to evaluate the family, identify where it is thriving, and explore where improvements are needed. Upon completing the questionnaire, readers learn which of the 10 Keys to a Happy Loving Family need attention and why. Providing practical tools for families in any stage of the life cycle, it is concise, engaging, and designed to capture the interest of working moms and dads who are often too busy to pore through lengthier works. “As practicing psychotherapists for 30-plus years, we have worked with thousands of couples and families who have reached out for help,” explain the authors. “Our model is positive, practical, and strength-based, and this book is an extension of that affirming approach.” How’s Your Family Really Doing? helps parents: • Recognize the characteristics of healthy families and how to bring out the best in one another. • Identify their family’s strengths and areas needing improvement. • Facilitate conversations about desired changes. • Create a working set of goals to focus efforts at improvement. • Examine the similarities and differences between their family of origin and current family. • Find specific ways to strengthen skills for each of the 10 Keys. How’s Your Family Really Doing? provides parents with the knowledge and resources to create happier, healthier, and more loving families for a lifetime.

Genre: Family & Relationships

Note: links below connect to the non-profit educational Break the Cycle! Web site (Formerly "Stepfamily inFormation"). Close the pages or use your browser´s "back" button to return here. Typical multi-home stepfamilies are riddled with conflicts between three or more co-parents and their relatives over child discipline, nutrition, visitations, custody, hygiene, religion, schooling, hoidays, loyalties, expenses, names, responsibilities, and other topics. The scope, complexity, and persistence of these disputes among ex mates, stepparents, and relatives can significantly contribute to eventual re/divorce. (The "/" notes it may be a stepparent´s first union). This guidebook is part of a series intended to help co-parents and supporters overcome five common hazards that combine to (1) promote epidemic U.S. re/divorce, and (2) pass on significant psychological wounds to vulnerable children. The hazards are: co-parents´ shared unawarenesses and ignorance of key information; plus... unseen psychological wounds from low-nurturance childhoods; plus... incomplete or blocked grief in kids and/or adults, which inhibits new bonds and adult intimacy; plus... courtship neediness and romantic illusions; plus... little informed stepfamily help in the media and local community. Typical nuclear stepfamilies include three or more co-parents (bioparents and stepparents) and several minor kids shuttling between two or more homes: Parenting effectively in this environment is far more complex than in "traditional" intact biological families - which catches typical co-parents and relatives by surprise. Why this book (and series)? Families exist to nurture - i.e. to fill key needs of their kids and adults. Most U.S. stepfamilies follow the divorce of one or both new mates, most of whom are parents. Divorce suggests that their kids weren´t well nurtured in their first family, and have many concurrent developmental + special needs to fill in their complex stepfamily.

Shrinking Violets and Caspar Milquetoasts

Author: Patricia McDaniel
Publisher: NYU Press
ISBN: 9780814761212
Release Date: 2003-11-01
Genre: Social Science

Since World War II Americans’ attitudes towards shyness have changed. The women’s movement and the sexual revolution raised questions about communication, self-expression, intimacy, and personality, leading to new concerns about shyness. At the same time, the growth of psychotherapy and the mental health industry brought shyness to the attention of professionals who began to regard it as an illness in need of a cure. But what is shyness? How is it related to gender, race, and class identities? And what does its stigmatization say about our culture? In Shrinking Violets and Caspar Milquetoasts, Patricia McDaniel tells the story of shyness. Using popular self-help books and magazine articles she shows how prevailing attitudes toward shyness frequently work to disempower women. She draws on evidence as diverse as 1950s views of shyness as a womanly virtue to contemporary views of shyness as a barrier to intimacy to highlight how cultural standards governing shyness reproduce and maintain power differences between and among women and men.
