Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This volume provides advice for the families who experience college separation each year. It explores the fact that parenting doesn't end when a child goes to college. By showing how to strengthen family bonds, manage separation anxiety and avoid change resistance, it helps families negotiate this transition, teaching them to separate while remaining connected. Dr Janis Brody discusses the issues that face both parents and college-bound children, such as overcoming sadness, making decisions and keeping in touch. She explains the parental behaviour that provides a secure base of children; reveals the underlying causes of and focuses attention on specific interactions preventing gradual separation; offers advice on overcoming sadness, solving problems for the student, and determining the health of family emotions; and explores particular family dynamics that contribute to separation anxiety. First-hand accounts are included.
