Our purpose in writing this book is to share our clinical experiences in working with seniors and elderly patients and their adult children. The primary emphasis is on how the parent uses his or her therapy to resolve conflicts in their relationships with their middle aged children. The literature already speaks volumes about how the adult child feels and behaves during the latter years of their parents' lives, however our book represents the voice of the elderly parent, which prior to this, has gone unheard. The information in our book is not only useful to the elderly parent and adult child, but it also informs the audience of mental health professionals who treat this population.

About the Author

Carol Teplin, a licensed counselor, and Barbara Kaplan, a clinical psychologist, have worked primarily with seniors. Both share a passion for expressing the needs of this population.


The authors of this caring and insightful book thread their way through obstacles to nourishment parent and child offer each other, as age takes its toll and opens new pathways. (Michael Eigen, Ph.D., author of Flames From the Unconscious: Trauma, Madness, and Faith and Feeling Matters) In their book, Ball-Teplin & Kaplan demonstrate that individuals and families can change their relationships even in the latter years of life. Their case studies show that using a variety of therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy, even the very old can reconcile with their loved ones. (Ruth Nemzoff, Ed.D., author of Don't Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships with Your Adult Children.)
