Dr. Hollman has developed a concept that gives parents a method to help themselves and their children cope with the emotional challenges of childhood and adolescence. Using her method of Parental Intelligence, parents are guided through the steps leading to the relief of anger and ultimately to a closer bond between parent and child. Using clear language and numerous examples, Dr. Hollman opens up the world of compassionate and empathic relationships to all of us. Dr. Hollman has transformed her many years of clinical experience and study into an immensely useful guide for parents and clinicians to help children and parents develop stronger familial relationships and relieve the stress and anger that may develop at different stages of childhood. Parenthetically, these methods work just as effectively for all relationships. This is a book that should be read by all parents and clinicians. Thank you, Dr. Hollman. --Ernest Kovacs, MD, FAPA, Diplomate, American Board Psychiatry and Neurology; Clinical Professor of Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Supervisor in Family and Marital Therapy, Zucker Hillside Psychiatric Residence Program
Laurie Hollman's primer for parents deciphers anger in children and teens and describes its circumstances in a digestible format. Her five-step approach elevates the Parental Intelligence that reduces the parent-child emotional impasses usually associated with power struggles in parent-child relationships. Parents are empowered to aim for understanding, but not in an intellectualized, cerebral sense. Through many illustrations, the book brings together the two generations, children and adults, searching for the overlapping elements in the history of and repetitions of anger-provoking situations. The best and worst of the parents emotional experiences with their own parents are reflected on, as Dr. Hollman suggests, which can produce empathy and constructive options in the present moment. This book incorporates psychodynamic principles and practical wisdom for learning from our children and adolescent s angry experiences. Parents can learn new approaches at problem solving from the perspective of child and family development and meaning-making. It s like having Dr. Hollman as a live-in psychological-expert childminder. Read the book twice! --Carl Bagnini, LCSW, BCD Senior Faculty, International Psychotherapy Institute, Washington, DC, and Long Island, NY, Teaching Child and Family Therapy, Couple Therapy and Psychoanalytic Supervision
