Family Talk, a new book I recomend

I want to share a new book with my readers and friends. It is written by Christy Monson, a fellow author and dear friend of mine. It's an awesome "how to" book about organizing family meetings, solving family problems, and strengthening relationships. I highly recommend it.

Family Talk, How to Organize Family Meetings to Solve Problems and Strengthen Relationships
Author Christy Monson helps families achieve healthy synergy through
hosting regular family councils
A retired family therapist, Monson shares stories and concrete examples to guide families through the process of fine tuning communication through family meetings.
She explores the use of family councils as the perfect teaching environment to:
            Understand difficult issues
            Troubleshoot problems
            Find solutions
            Build a child's self esteem
            Give children the message that they are valued
            Help children know they are loved
            Encourage family members to become the best they can be
About the Author: Christy Monson established a successful counseling practice in Las Vegas, Nevada, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Her books, Love, Hugs, and Hope: When Scary Things Happen and Becoming Free: A Woman's Guide To Internal Strength are published by Familius.

Praise for Family Talk

The Family Council Guidebook is a vital and necessary addition to every home. In this day and age when emails, chat rooms, and staring at computer screens are rapidly replacing real-time human interaction, what better corrective could there be than a guidebook to how to talk with one another in meaningful, productive and healing ways. Christy Monson knows what she is talking about. It is a great blessing that she is sharing it with all of us.
