WithGarry L. Landreth, Sue C. Bratton
Pages 21

In previous chapters, we have followed Debbie’s journey through 10 sessions of CPRT as she struggled with her own feelings of inadequacy and her relationship with her daughter. At this point, it might be helpful to revisit some of Debbie’s reasons for wanting CPRT training. Debbie had been married for 5 years and had two children, Rachel, who was 4 years old, and Josh, who was 3 months. She was a stay-at-home mother and struggled with feelings of isolation from her husband, depression, and anger, and she was overwhelmed by the requirements of parenting.
