I love recommending books to my clients. I try to read every book that I recommend before I suggest it. Sometimes, this is challenging as there are SO MANY BOOKS. I want to read them all. (Really.) I love reading and I recommend books left and right, both in my personal life and in my professional world.
The #1 book that I recommend as a therapist is about divorce and co-parenting.
Most of my clients are tweens and teens. Many of them are a part of a divorced family. Helping parents navigate the challenges that come with divorce, co-parenting and blended families is a large part of my practice.
For families in the midst of major changes and grief because of a divorce, I recommend “The Co-Parents’ Handbook: Raising Well-Adjusted, Resilient and Resourceful Kids in a Two-Home Family from Little Ones to Young Adults” by Karen Bonnell and Kristin Little.
The title is a mouthful, but this book is the best resource for all aspects of divorce when children are involved.
Here are the three reasons I love this book:
