We learn much about life from our primary relationships, especially our parents, who are imperfect. When we were young, they modeled beliefs and behaviors they learned from their parents—who were also imperfect. Unfortunately, this cycle goes on and on, damaging one generation after the other. Most of us have learned erroneous ideas about life, about who we are, about who others are, and about who God is. As a result, our lives and our relationships have suffered. Even worse, since this is all we knew, we continue this faulty imprinting, damaging future generations without knowing that is what we are doing. Breaking the Cycle of Hurtful Family Experiences helps identify these harmful patterns. Using it will also help you develop healthy relationships with others. Breaking the Cycle of Hurtful Family Experiences helps you learn how God, speaking through His Word, reshapes false perceptions. By understanding who God really is, you will experience His love, forgiveness, and power in all of the circumstances of your life. Robert S McGee is a professional counselor, lecturer, and author of the book, The Search For Significance. He also is founder and president of Rapha, a nationally recognized health care organization that provided in-hospital psychiatric and substance abuse treatment from a Christian perspective in hospitals and treatment centers across the United States. Pat Springle is president of Baxter Press. He is former senior vice president for Rapha Resources and served on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ for 18 years. Jim Craddock is the founder and president of Scope Ministries International, a biblical counseling ministry, which seeks to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of persons, by helping them apply principles from the Bible. Dale McCleskey has served as LIFE Support Group Series editor at the Baptist Sunday School Board, has been a pastor in New Mexico and has led and participated in support groups for many years.

Surviving and Thriving in Stepfamily Relationships draws on current research, a wide variety of clinical modalities, and thirty years of clinical work with stepfamily members to describe the special challenges stepfamilies face. The book presents the concept of "stepfamily architecture" and the five challenges it creates, and delineates three different levels of strategies―psychoeducation, building interpersonal skills, and intrapsychic work―for meeting those challenges in dozens of different settings.

The model is designed to be useful both to stepfamily members themselves and to a wide variety of practitioners, from a highly trained clinician who needs to know how and when to work on all three levels, to a school counselor or clergy person who may work on the first two levels but refer out for level three. It will also be useful to educators, judges, mediators, lawyers and medical personnel who will practice on the first level, but need to understand the other two to guide their work.

Clinical psychologist Catherine Steiner-Adair takes an in-depth look at how the Internet and the digital revolution are profoundly changing childhood and family dynamics, and offers solutions parents can use to successfully shepherd their children through the technological wilderness.

As the focus of the family has turned to the glow of the screen—children constantly texting their friends or going online to do homework; parents working online around the clock—everyday life is undergoing a massive transformation. Easy access to the Internet and social media has erased the boundaries that protect children from damaging exposure to excessive marketing and the unsavory aspects of adult culture. Parents often feel they are losing a meaningful connection with their children. Children are feeling lonely and alienated. The digital world is here to stay, but what are families losing with technology's gain?

As renowned clinical psychologist Catherine Steiner-Adair explains, families are in crisis as they face this issue, and even more so than they realize. Not only do chronic tech distractions have deep and lasting effects but children also desperately need parents to provide what tech cannot: close, significant interactions with the adults in their lives. Drawing on real-life stories from her clinical work with children and parents and her consulting work with educators and experts across the country, Steiner-Adair offers insights and advice that can help parents achieve greater understanding, authority, and confidence as they engage with the tech revolution unfolding in their living rooms.
