Maximising the Possibility of Change and What to do if the Book Doesn't Help
Change Isn’t Always EasyUsing self-help to resolve issues in your family can be satisfying and empowering, but making changes in family life takes effort. You will need to make a little time to read, and for trying any suggested exercises. Sometimes it can take time for things to change so you might need to keep trying for a while to make things change. You might want to talk through the changes you are trying to make with a professional. Good luck!
What if the Book Doesn’t Help?
If you’ve given it a good try there could be a number of reasons why it didn’t work: Maybe you didn’t like the author’s style? Or the book didn’t cover precisely what you were looking for? If this is the case,
you may want to look up some of the other books we have recommended. The book list will be on the web site soon, along with summaries of what the book covers.
Alternatively, if you feel that you need more help to deal with the issues you and your family are facing then you can go back to the person who recommended it to you for more advice; or contact a professional that you trust to discuss it further. If they can’t help they’ll be able to direct you to someone who can.
