The book covers a wide range of situations: work with fathers, divorce and diverse family structures, the many modes of communicating with parents, family secrets and loyalty conflicts, what happens when parents are troubled, and the importance of parents in the lives of their teenagers--all are discussed. Privacy and secrecy are defined and differentiated to clarify the meaning and importance of genuine confidentiality. It suggests that restoring the parent-child relationship contributes to long-lasting therapeutic change in children and adolescents.
