"Relatively few psychologists are knowledgeable about Adlerian psychology, and [this book] can redress some of that lack…[C]ounselors, psychotherapists, teachers, social workers, and many other professionals will find excellent ideas here for how to help children adolescents, and their families." -- Contemporary Psychology

"While the book is directed primarily to a professional audience and should become the textbook for family counselors, it can have a direct personal benefit to parents and others who are tangentially involved in the field of family counseling--physicians, lawyers, ministers, teachers, nurses and others who work with parents with problems." -- R. J. Corsini, Ph.D., about the first edition
