Family Matters: Healing in the Heart of the Family

Daniel H. Gottlieb, Author Dutton Books $18.95 (288p) ISBN 978-0-525-24948-1
Psychologist Gottlieb hosts Philadelphia Public Radio's weekly Family Matters program, interviewing professionals and patients, among others, and dispensing advice about family relationships. Writing with freelancer Claflin, he recalls his experiences with clients and listeners, backing his thesis that ``only the wounded can be healers'' with material from his clinical training and from insights gained from a 1979 automobile accident that left him quadriplegic. In sections covering parents, mates, children and selves, readers are given suggestions for dealing with potentially difficult circumstances from the commonplace to the specific: growing up and coming to terms with sexuality, anger and guilt are discussed, as are marriage, divorce and death. The book delivers encouragement in a warm, personable tone that is free of professional jargon. (Feb.)
