Does your family live in conflict?

Does your child have a psychiatric label (such as ADHD, oppositional defiance, conduct disorder, bi-polar disorder) or the behavior that would get him/her one?

Have you lost (or nearly lost) control of your child?

If you answered YES to any of these three things, then PACT can help you as it has helped thousands of other families restore love and integrity to their relationships!

Biography :

Dr. Gibson earned his PhD in Education at the University of Connecticut in 1987 under the tutelage of Richard Bloomer. He poured everything about his childhood and his experience as a parent went into what became Parenting Angry Children and Teens (PACT) Training and the book, "Got An Angry Kid?" In 1993, the Connecticut State Department of Children and Families adopted the PACT methodology and since then 500 families have completed the year-long program with remarkable results.

Book Review :

This book is a lifeline to families where a "seemingly incorrigible" child has the household in a tailspin. Here is a book that lays out, clearly and concisely a step-by-step program for the parent(s)so that they can start to do things that work, to scrap the stuff that doesn't work and to create real change. This program is consistent with tried-and-true family systems theory - when one or two members of a group change, the whole system, even Spike (the book's prototype of everyone's nightmare child) HAS to change as well.

Dr. Andrew Gibson has a way with words and writes with the sort of humor that keeps your attention. But the book is no joke. Gibson takes desperate parents by the hand and supports them through a straight-forward process of serious change. There is no blame here, either at parent or child, just the here-and-now work of making things better.

The book is for parents. It is also for counselors, clergy, and anyone who works with families of difficult kids. Every probation officer, school psychologist, guidance counselor and the like should have piles of this book in their offices, ready to hand out to parents of kids whose behaviors get them into trouble.

"Got an Angry Kid?" grew out of work that Dr. Gibson has done for well over 20 years with parents of kids who were, as he calls it, "seriously difficult." I'm delighted that it is now available to all of us as a book.
If you know an angry kid, buy this book!
