Parenting a Troubled Teen: Manage Conflict Using ACT


Product Description

Published USA, 2017
Patricia Zurita introduces parents to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a method to understanding their teenager's behaviour. She asks them to pay attention to the 'nitty-gritty moments' of their internal experience when parenting, to identify the different types of thoughts, memories, emotions, impulses and sensations that show up for them. ACT parenting skills are outlined, including mindfulness, appreciation, empathy, assertiveness and compassion skills. The final part of the book addresses what to do in those challenging moments when things go wrong even when you've done your best.

Patricia Zurita is Adjunct Professor at the Wright Institute in the USA.
