Strengthening Family Resilience
How do some families successfully weather crisis situations and adversity, while others weaken or even break apart? Focusing on what we can learn from resilient individuals and well-functioning families, this book provides clinicians with a framework for preventive and interventive work with families that are distressed or at risk. Froma Walsh draws on current research and extensive clinical experience to identify the key processes that buffer families in times of stress, including belief systems, family structure, and communication patterns. Readers learn strength- promoting, collaborative strategies for helping families deal with divorce, death, and other losses; multicrisis situations; and persistent challenges such as illness and poverty.
