Summary
Because dysfunctional patterns are closed systems that serve a secret purpose, they are almost impossible to change from the outside. Patterns of Child Abuse helps you recognize the purpose behind the patterns and offers successful strategies for changing the pattern from within. Synthesizing systems theory, behaviorism, and psychoanalysis, this brilliant book teaches you to subvert the most common destructive patterns and therefore to help heal children and families caught in the child welfare system
