"Stories from Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy is a must have read for all psychotherapists. Kronengold uses his stories to propose an exciting new way of working psychotherapeutically. His stories gently, but powerfully portray psychotherapy in its most creative form."-Peter Blake, Child Psychotherapist; Founder and current chair of the Institute of Child and Adolescent, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Sydney, Australia "Kronengold invites us to stop and wonder, to pause and reflect, and to ponder upon the complex weave of the therapeutic process. This is a book about questions, not answers - just as it should be - and in this sense is an invaluable resource not just for child therapists but all those interested in the creative and playful process of child psychotherapy." -David Le Vay: Play Therapist/Dramatherapist. Senior Lecturer MA Play Therapy (University of Roehampton, London) and Clinical Partner with The Bridge Therapy Centre. "This welcome and much needed book is unusual in that it presents stories from inside the therapy room in a prose that is limpid and moving yet in a clinically sophisticated style. As a reader you really get the feeling of how the therapeutic space is co-created by two subjects."-Gunnar Carlberg, PhD, Professor, former Director of the Erica Foundation, Stockholm, Sweden. "With a fresh voice unencumbered with theoretical jargon, Kronengold privileges curiosity through a descriptive unfolding of six detailed cases that transport us into the animated worlds of his patients. This book will become a primer for clinicians of all stripes."-Christopher Bonovitz PsyD, Supervising & Training Analyst, William Alanson White Institute, Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor of Psychology, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis. "Henry Kronengold is one of the most creative and interesting writers in the field of child psychotherapy. He uniquely appreciates the rich therapy process and describes it so beautifully."-David A. Crenshaw, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Director, Children's Home of Poughkeepsie "Henry Kronengold is a humorous, gifted psychotherapist and he provides us with a great gift in his invitation to view his personal work through our own lens."- Eileen Prendiville, psychotherapist, play therapist; Course Director for the MA in Creative Psychotherapy and Play Therapy at Ireland's Children's Therapy Centre.
