This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

Books and Methods Review - Therapeutic Parenting - Denise Best

Therapeutic Parenting

Denise Best

Christine Moers (therapeutic parenting guru):  “It will cost you $32. Do it. Order it. You will get it in the mail and stare at it wondering if you've been duped. It is not slick and shiny ... at all. However, it is one of the most complete and practical guides for how to do this whole thing called "therapeutic parenting." It covers all the information you would receive by attending one of Denise's full-day trainings.

After two years of pouring through everything out there, it was that unassuming booklet that helped me really "get" how I needed to do this.”

Marythemom:  I've heard amazing things about this book.  Apparently the new version will come out this Fall 2012, or you can purchase the current version and she'll send you the new one for free when it's available!

The links I've posted no longer work either! Bummer. I lent mine to someone in Orlando and hope it is still floating around to trauma parents. It's the best thing I've read.
