Über diesen Titel


The distinguished author of Unfinished Business and Intimate Partners now takes readers inside the complex worlds of the family to explore all of the factors that go into the formation and functioning of a family at different periods in its life. Line drawings.

From Booklist:

So many Americans are now worried about family values that this self-help book on family intimacy is sure to find a large audience. What readers will find here is not only a sophisticated typology of family types (chaotic, polarized, rule-bound, adequate, and optional), but also a therapeutic agenda for improving home life. Although Scarf draws extensively from the professional literature, she develops her key points through narrative portrayals of some of the 50 families she interviewed in researching this book. The importance of family history emerges as a primary theme: most of us subconsciously reenact family scripts learned from parents and grandparents. When unrecognized, these scripts can trap us in conflict, abuse, or resentment; yet when consciously identified, they can be edited and rewritten. Scarf explains how, in her case, as in many others, coming to terms with family history means learning to forgive family members, an admittedly difficult task. The author's candor and sensitivity ensure that numerous readers will find her a trustworthy guide to a more rewarding family life. But some readers will detect the deficiencies inherent in the self-help genre. For instance, although Scarf gives readers advice for assessing their own family's weaknesses, she ignores the broader cultural trends making family life more fragile then ever before. Without an analysis of such cultural trends, those who proffer self-help formulas may be setting readers up for failure. Bryce Christensen
