Family Talk: How to Organize Family Meetings to Solve Problems and Strengthen Relationships
Christy Monson, a retired family therapist, provides in simple language concrete examples and clear language to family success through family councils.
While families are diverse and their needs are unique, a family council provides a safe and strong environment for every family to discuss issues and explore the best ways to have the family succeed. A family council is not just any meeting. It's a special event that provides a background and foundation to create healthy family synergy. Monson teaches families what a family council is and what it is not, why it's a perfect environment for teaching, for exploring difficult issues, learning how to play, and how best to solve problems at home, school, or work.
Christy Monson's straightforward, easy-to-understand guide will help families of all sizes and types, through the communication and caring that comes from great family councils. Learn how councils work and how to easily implement them. The author's expertise as a former family counselor and successful mother shine through in this offering. Highly recommended.
