In my clinical practice, I often recommend to parents different books that can support and reinforce the therapeutic work we do together or the work I am doing with their child or adolescent. The books can be helpful resources for parents.
Of course, it is important to keep in mind that parenting books do not replace seeking professional help from a psychologist, psychiatrist, psychotherapist or other health professional, especially for more severe and complex problems. Rather, these recommended books can be a good place to start and can compliment the services you are receiving.
Please find in the table below several recommended books on various topics including anger, ADHD, anxiety, divorce, and general parenting. You may want to check back again at a later date as more suggested publications will be added.
