Review by:
Ramon Ganzarain

This book's subtitle, Creating New Connections between the Individual and Society, suggests the authors' attempt to offer professional interventions that may help individuals “create meaningful connections” among them and with the social “institutions within which they work and live” (p. 3). Such new links are necessary because “both families and organizations—familiar places in which we live—have recently become strange. People are stressed by the sense of being lost, unable to find their way. Connections that once seemed reliable are missing” (p. 3). “Individuals feel increasingly lost, unsure of the roles required of them … in the swirl of social change” (p. 4).
