In Their Own Words

"We need to develop ways to teach families to talk about their individual and shared past together in ways that facilitate adolescent self-understanding and self-esteem. We need to teach families to talk about their negative experiences and their negative emotions in ways that help adolescents learn to manage and regulate their negative affect, rather than to act out on it. These are not difficult concepts; if we can help families to collaboratively construct narratives then we can help families buffer adolescents from the stress and storm of adolescence and help these adolescents to form healthy adult identities. Families build resilience through building stories."
