DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
If you are a caregiver of a teen struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, drug use, high-risk behaviors, runaway, etc, this book is for you. Parenting teens has become exponentially more difficult over the last 10 years. This book is designed to help you have a better relationship with your teen and solve conflicts so they don’t keep happening over and over again.
The two main points I cover here are the need for connection and collaboration while addressing conflict.
I am a therapist-turned-parenting coach, and I have used this method hundreds of times to help families through conflict. If you are interested in learning more about coaching, you can always visit my website: www.irisinitiatives.com. I give you everything you need in the book to get a handle on the conflict in your family and start actually addressing the real issues right NOW.
This book is designed as a how-to model and is very low on fluff and hot air. I am not that kind of person, so I didn’t write that kind of book. It will give you the tools and strategies you need to approach conflict differently than ever.
