About Child Parent Institute
Child Parent Institute, formerly California Parenting Institute, is a parent education and children’s mental health agency, serving families throughout Sonoma County since 1978. Our continuum of care includes child therapy, family resource assistance, parent education, facilitated supervised visitation, therapeutic and recreational creative arts programming, and a non-public school (New Directions) providing adolescent special education/mental health services. We advocate for policies that support families and protect children.
Our mission is to end child abuse and strengthen the health of children, parents, and families.
For as long as Sasha Joseph Neulinger can remember, a video camera was ever-present, his father constantly filming. But his father’s camera, trained on the celebrations and frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, was also documenting a hidden secret. It was a secret that eight-year-old Sasha could not keep. The truth sparked a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. Now in his twenties, Neulinger draws upon a revealing home video archive to piece together an unflinching story of the cycles and consequences of abuse, to examine what it means to heal, and to effect positive change in the world. REWIND probes the gap between image and reality, showing both how little, and how much, a camera can capture.

In his candid personal memoir, Sasha Joseph Neulinger revisits his childhood and the events that tore apart his seemingly-perfect world. For as long as Neulinger can remember, his father was constantly filming. But his camera, trained on the frequent gatherings of a tight-knit family, also captured the story of an unraveling childhood, a media firestorm, a high-stakes court battle, and a generational reckoning. Drawing upon an incredibly revealing home video archive, REWIND probes the gap between image and reality and proves just how little, and how much, a camera can capture.
