Description

There isn't a child alive who isn't troubled at times. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and all those who work with children constantly encounter behavior that puzzles, disturbs, or actively alarms them. Confronted with a troubled child, how does one assess the seriousness of a problem? Determine whether it's just "a phase" or the real thing? Whether professional help is needed, and what form it should take? How does one find an appropriate therapist, someone not only qualified but with the right "fit" for both the child and the parents? What actually happens in therapy with children?This comprehensive book not only answers questions such as these, it also presents in astonishingly vivid form real therapy sessions in action, so that readers will find themselves participating in the process of therapy. Insightful presentations of the major therapeutic orientations used in treating children - psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems therapy, and the often controversial issue of psychopharmacology - give us both the underpinnings of these approaches and vivid portraits of therapists at work.show more
