From the Cover of The Unofficial Guide to Therapeutic Parenting the Teen Years by Sally Donovan:

“Raising any teenager can be tough, but raising teens who have experienced trauma in their early years is a whole different — and more difficult — ball game. Adoptive parent Sally Donovan is here to answer everything you’ve ever wanted to ask about therapeutically parenting teenagers, and a whole lot more besides. Therapeutic parenting is equal parts love, commitment, determination, and realism, and Sally writes about it all with both wit and wisdom. Read this book to hear a voice speaking from experience about everything to expect from therapeutically parenting your teens.”
