Rules of Estrangement: Why Adult Children Cut Ties and How to Heal the Conflict
Labeled a silent epidemic by a growing number of therapists and researchers, estrangement is one of the most disorienting and painful experiences of a parent's life. The reasons for estrangement are complex and varied. As a result of rising rates of individualism, an increasing cultural emphasis on happiness, growing economic insecurity, and a historically recent perception that parents are obstacles to personal growth, many parents find themselves forever shut out of the lives of their adult children and grandchildren. Dr. Joshua Coleman’s new book Rules of Estrangement: Why Adult Children Cut Ties and How to Heal the Conflict guides parents in navigating these fraught interactions, achieving better understanding of their adult children’s mindset, and implementing the strategies for reconciliation and healing that he has seen work in his forty years of practice.
Joshua Coleman has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, CNN, NBC, MarketWatch, the San Francisco Chronicle, and more. He has also appeared on Sesame Street, 20/20, The Today Show, Good Morning America and is a regular guest on NPR.
