Item description for FRAGMENTED FAMILIES: Patterns of Estrangement and Reconciliation by Ellen Sucov...

The purpose of the book Fragmented Families is to clarify the phenomenon of estrangement between family members. The book focuses on the meanings and process of alienation, its outcomes and possible paths toward resolution. The reader is encouraged to recognize that estrangement, with all its frustration and pain, may offer new opportunities for self-understanding. The task of exploring one?s family, examining its fragmented parts and clarifying one?s own role as a family member is a crucial step in personal development, whether or not the effort leads to reconciliation. Fragmented Families is intended for a general readership. It will also be a relevant resource for psychologists, physicians, lawyers, social workers and clergy.

Reviews - What do customers think about FRAGMENTED FAMILIES: Patterns of Estrangement and Reconciliation?

A valuable resource and a source of inspiration  Sep 13, 2006
This review was written by Meyer Sonis, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Child Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh. "Fragmented Families" is "a splendid blend of theoretical insights, cultural awareness, and practical advice. The author's ideas come through clearly, lovingly, and to the point. This book is a valuable resource for mental health professionals and others who work with discordant families. It will be a source of inspiration to families who have experienced the pain of estrangement."

Here are the impressions of Avivah Zornberg, Ph.D., Author and Lecturer, Jerusalem: "A compellingly intelligent account of the crises in family life that lead to rupture. Ellen Sucov writes with lucid passion about the many dimensions of such rifts, drawing on material from professional literature, biblical and literary narratives, and from the experiences of real families, including her own. She analyzes with great insight the dynamics of such estrangements and the reconciliations that sometimes emerge from them. Vivid and wise, her book will enrich anyone who has lived in a family..."

Yisroel Miller, Rabbi of Poale Zedeck Congregation in Pittsburgh, wrote these comments: "I have been reading your wonderful book, and I had the pleasure of recommending it from the pulpit (something I very rarely do) this past Shabbos. Most every reader can relate to the experiences in your book and learn from them. Those few who have not had similar experiences can read your book and count their blessings!
You have added to the sum total of human happiness, and provided understanding and consolation. You have also added insights from the Torah, which is very special... May Hashem give you much success!"
