As a clinician, Back to Basics parenting and family therapy model have helped me to deal with child behavior, one of the most common reasons for referral in my practice as a school social worker. It was rewarding to make a difference in the lives and relationships of so many families. I felt like an effective social worker when I began using this approach and this was important for my professional resilience.

As a parent I began using the Back to Basics(tm) model in raising my own daughter. It has made the sometimes stressful and confusing challenge of parenting manageable.

I am personally and professionally grateful to have learned these essential skills.
