THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER'Essential, clever and kind' Alain de Botton'I am a huge admirer of Julia's work' Elizabeth Day______________________Why do some families thrive in adversity while others fragment? How can families weather difficult transitions together? Why do our families drive us mad? And how can even small changes greatly improve our relationships?In Every Family Has a Story, bestselling psychotherapist Julia Samuel turns from her acclaimed work with individuals to draw on her sessions with a wide variety of families, across multiple generations. Through eight beautifully told and insightful case studies, she analyses a range of common issues, from loss to leaving home, and from separation to step-relationships, and shows how much is, in fact, inherited -- and how much can be healed when it is faced together. Exploring the relationships that both touch us most and hurt us most, including the often under-appreciated impact of grandparents and siblings, and incorporating the latest academic research, she offers wisdom that is applicable to us all. Her twelve touchstones for family well-being -- from fighting productively to making time for rituals -- provide us with the tools to improve our relationships, and to create the families we wish for. This is a moving and reassuring meditation that, amid trauma and hardship, tells unforgettable stories of forgiveness, hope and love. ______________________'Everyone who reads this will learn something profound' Dr Rachel Clarke'Offers vivid insights in a book for all families' Kathryn Mannix'I love every word she writes' Cathy Rentzenbrink; 320 pages; Published: 17/03/2022
