preface by Mary Ellen Copeland

Informed parents expect a good home health guide to include the information they need to monitor their family's well-being, to make sure they are following appropriate nutritional and exercise guidelines, and to help them take every step they can to prevent problems. The Family Guide to Emotional Wellness is just such a resource. This unique home health guide combines accessible information about common mental health issues with the step-by-step exercises and techniques that readers have come to expect from New Harbinger's authoritative self-help guides.

Included in the Family Guide are emergency first-aid tips to help readers get through the first days of coping with an unexpected crisis as well as the basic information about common problems that readers need to help them recognize troublesome symptoms. But what sets this guide apart from all other mental health references is its exploration of the skills that parents need to raise children who know how to cope with stress, are confident about their ability to handle their emotions, and feel prepared to take on new challenges and responsibilities.
