API Reads Selection for March, April, and May 2014: Giving the Love that Heals

We’ve started talking about Giving the Love That Heals by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.

Just a few of the topics we’ll be discussing in April will be:

  • Growing Yourself Up

  • The Stage of Attachment

  • The Stage of Exploration

  • The Stage of Identity

  • The Stage of Competence

So far we’ve learned how our unconscious mind has controlled most of our parenting based upon our own upbringing. We do have the power to change these unconscious decisions though. We can do so through our actions and our intentional dialogue with our children. We’ve been having a few deep discussions. Our discussions happen on GoodReads. The next book up for discussion in June, July, and August will be Attached at the Heart, 2nd Edition by Lysa Parker and Barbara Nicholson.
