Proven ways to create a more loving family Research proves that happy families are good for health, longevity, peace of mind, productivity, and success. In The Secrets of Happy Families, Scott Haltzman offers an original approach to building family contentment that works for families of all ethnicities and make-ups--two-parent, single-parent, blended, childless, or same-sex couple. He provides a “positive psychology" way of solving family problems through strategy and leadership, including knowing and accepting who you are, taking a leadership role in loving and united relationships, building a network of support in extended families and communities, and making quality time for fun, adventures, holidays, and rituals. Scott Haltzman, MD (Providence, RI), is a veteran psychiatrist with an active private practice and university-based clinic. Theresa Foy DiGeronimo (Hawthorne, NJ) is the author of more than 50 books on parenting and education. Together, they are the authors of The Secrets of Happily Married Men (978-0-7879-9414-3) and The Secrets of Happily Married Women (978-0-7879-9612-3).
