Review quote

Schaefer and Eisen offer a comprehensive perspective on parent-child therapy and provide us with appropriate developmental interventions, completing the circle ninety years after Freud's treatment of Little Hans through his father. This is an extremely valuable resource for mental health professionals who want to empower parents-so often disenfranchised by well-intentioned child care systems-in the healing process. -- Kirkland C. Vaughans, Ph.D., editor, Journal of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychotherapy; regional director, New Hope Guild Centers The use of parents as change agents for their children's behavior is an idea whose time has come: it's both effective and efficient. Helping Parents Solve Their Children's Behavior Problems is an immensely rich source of tested and practical treatment methods for use by clinicians and educators addressing significant child problems with diminishing resources. The abundant case material, detailed descriptions of techniques for applying behavior counseling to a very wide range of common challenges, and outcome information make this a valuable guide for anyone working with children and families. -- Rise VanFleet, Ph.D., director, Family Enhancement and Play Therapy Center; former president, Association for Play Therapy
