Dealing with the potential pain and burden of family, a translation of US mental health therapist Nedra Glover Tawwab's latest book has recently been published by Beijing-based CITIC Press Group.

Drama Free: A Guide to Managing Unhealthy Family Relationships, a bestseller on Amazon last year, identifies patterns and suggests solutions for ways to break cycles and move forward.

The book explores 20 dysfunctional family patterns, elaborates on their harmful influence, and advises people on ways to adjust their relationships with family members, and take control of their lives.

"Without a fresh perspective and the belief that we can break the cycle, we can get stuck in family patterns rather than living as our whole selves. With compassion and clarity, Nedra Tawwab offers a much-needed guide to understanding our upbringing — and becoming an agent for change in our own lives," says Lori Gottlieb, a psychotherapist and writer, while commenting on the book.

Tawwab shot to fame as the bestselling author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself. Her book was also translated into Chinese and has a rating of 8.4 points out of 10 on China's popular review site, Douban.
