6. Acknowledgments
To the great pioneers in person-oriented therapy: Carl Rogers, Milton H. Erickson, Virginia Satir, Carl Whitaker, the Milan Group, and before them, to the founders Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.

To my teachers Stan Woollams and Kristy Huige, who passed on to me what I could learn from them.

To my thousands of patients and their parents for their trust and for allowing me to learn from them, and who presented me with what books alone can never teach, the living reality of the miracle of relationship between parent and child.

I am particularly indebted to the many members of my Parenting Seminars who through four decades showed me the innovative strategies that had worked for them. Special thanks to Jeff Lark and Donna Weiner; Chris Lux and Steve Wells.

To my professional colleagues who have worked with me in the clinical setting as well as in parenting classes and seminars, especially Da'Lynn Clayton, RN, PhD, whose sustained encouragement over the years has helped bring this work to fruition.

To my wife Carol, whose unwavering support and understanding have made it all possible.
