Just the idea of adolescence provokes more dread, more worry, and more confusion than any other stage of childhoodwhich is why we are so excited about the Elium's newest parenting book. This is not a cynical survival guide. RAISING A TEENAGER is an honest, beautifully written exploration of the issues facing parents of teens today, with practical, realistic solutions.
DON ELIUM is a marriage, family, and child counselor in private practice. He works extensively with men and women in recovery from the post-traumatic stress of childhood abuse with a special interest in healing the wounds of father/daughter relationships.
As a transpersonal education and workshop leader, JEANNE ELIUM challenges parents to put aside limiting stereotypes and gender roles in order to see their child through a wider lens. Both Jeanne and her husband Don are known for their powerful seminars that have brought healing to thousands of individuals and families.
