Family therapist Michael Ungar, internationally-renowned for his work on child and youth resilience, takes us into his world each Wednesday, when he meets with three families with very troubled children. Here, Michael shares a side of himself that is not the all-knowing therapist: he too was a troubled teen, growing up in an emotionally and physically abusive home.

In the book, Michael shares nine things that all troubled kids need from their parents that will help them turn their lives around and flourish:
Structure
Consequences
Parent-child connections
Lots of peer and adult relationships
A powerful identity
A sense of control
A sense of belonging, spirituality, and life purpose
Fair and just treatment by others
Safety and support

Hopeful in tone, and using knowledge gathered from Michael's work around the world, I Still Love You shows that it is never too late to help our children change and reconnect with those who will always love them.
