Juul (family therapist, director of the Kempler Institute of Scandinavia, and Family Counseling International in Croatia) believes that the concept of family is undergoing an exciting transformation. The traditional hierarchical family structure based on destructive values obedience, physical and emotional violence, conformity is being replaced by a new structure, which advocates dignity and reciprocity between parent and child, and assumes the belief that children are born competent to express their feelings and eager to cooperate. Juul uses examples from families around the world to illustrate his theories about how parents and children can more effectively develop together as families. Accessible to a broad audience. Translated from Danish. No subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
