Description

Informed by an amalgamation of psychoanalytic and attachment theories, the techniques offered in this book can be employed alongside a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as evidenced-based cognitive-behavioral treatment; social learning, family systems, emotion-focused, Ericksonian, and solution-focused approaches; gestalt, psychodynamic, and narrative therapies; as well as play therapy and the therapies of the creative arts. 'Evocative strategies' have been developed for the purpose of engaging children in an emotionally meaningful process. Crenshaw illustrates that in order to create moments of transformation and change in and through the therapy process, we have to learn the language of the heart-where children in their essence live.

Review quote

Reading David Crenshaw's new book is an evocative experience that elicits feelings of sadness, anger, despair, surprise, excitement, hope and pure joy. David demonstrates the integrative approach in his book that he advocates in his work: A true anchoring of technique in theory. He more than meets the challenge of contemporary clinicians of substantiating their approaches with a thorough understanding of the available science. The end result is a masterful blend of a solid foundation that serves as a springboard for lovely, spirited, and purposeful leaps of creativity. I highly recommend this informative, moving, and immediately useful book. -- Eliana Gil, Ph.D., Multicultural Clinical Center, Springfield, VA; author of Healing Power of Play and Family Play Therapy Though it is intended for practicing clinicians, this book is clearly and simply written, relatively free of jargon, and full of useful suggestions. Accordingly, it will serve a broad audience. Summing Up: Recommended. All readers; all levels. CHOICE David Crenshaw, an experienced child therapist, presents twenty Evocative Strategies as aids to treating young patients who are reluctant to delve into an exploration of their problems by means of direct verbalizations. ...the techniques Crenshaw advocates have proven to be helpful... Psychoanalytic Review Evocative Strategies in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy clearly deserves to be in every library of all clinicians working with children and adolescents. David Crenshaw's clinical use of metaphor, storytelling, art, poetry, role playing, drama and rituals is nothing short of masterful. This book is a ground-breaking contribution to the field and will continue to nourish those who read it and be gifted by the inherent teachings for years to come. -- Joyce C. Mills, Ph.D., LMFT, RPT-S, IBECPT, author of Reconnecting to the Magic of Life David Crenshaw, an experienced child therapist, presents twenty Evocative Strategies as aids to treating young patients who are reluctant to delve into an exploration of their problems by means of direct verbalizations. ...the techniques Crenshaw advocates have proven to be helpful.
