Review quote

This is an incredibly helpful book - informed by research in infant/early childhood mental health, insights from the neurosciences, and the latest findings on sensory-regulatory processing difficulties. With its use of plain language and empathic stance, it both demystifies the complex processes underlying young children's development and offers ways to understand and respond to a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. Collaborative Intervention in Early Childhood is an outstanding resource that early childhood specialists will embrace. * Gerard Costa, Ph.D., Founding Director, YCS Institute for Infant and Preschool Mental Health Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, UMDNJ-NJMS * This book is a wonderful and much-needed resource providing practical strategies to help parents, educators, and clinicians intervene successfully in response to young children's difficulties. Hirschland makes an accessible link between research, theory, and practice through the use of compelling stories that all of us can relate to. * Roxane Kaufmann, Director, Early Childhood Policy, Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development * This book skillfully and creatively conveys some very complex information about working with challenging young children in language that will be easily understood and welcomed by parents and teachers. Full of detailed case examples-and conveying utmost respect for all who deal with young children-it is solidly grounded in child development and will be an important resource for social workers, early childhood educators, and school counselors for years to come. * Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, RPT-S, Distinguished Professor of Social Work, Fordham University, Graduate School of Social Service; Editor, Play Therapy with Children in Crisis, 3rd ed.., Guilford Press *show more
