For anyone who has ever wondered how to translate theory and concepts into practice, this book is the answer. Beginning with an overview of DDP, Becker Weidman brings us straight into the therapeutic session. Spanning the globe, seven very unique practioners share actual transcripts of therapy sessions that illustrate each principle of the treatment. A must read for both beginning and seasoned folk interested in healing hurt children and their families. -- Janice Goldwater, LCSW-C, Executive Director, Adoptions Together This casebook illuminates Dyadic Developmental a way that makes it invaluable for therapists, graduate students, and clinical treatment supervisors. The contributing authors illustrate the creative integration of their personal styles with the theory and method, which is refreshing in contrast to some manualized approaches. The concept of phases of treatment introduced by Dr. Becker-Weidman provides context and mapping of the methodology in a way that contributes to reflective practice and case discussion. This is a must-have casebook for the clinician's bookshelf. -- Michael Blugerman, MSW, Executive Director, Children's Resource and Consultation Centre of Ontario
