Magical Moments of Change: How Psychotherapy Turns Kids Around Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terr presents highly effective child psychotherapeutic styles and techniques and demonstrates them in three ways: by relating "moments" from at least six of her own cases; by conveying and comparing "moments" from 33 of her distinguished colleagues' cases; and by watching her "wild child" patient, little Cammie, develop her own eight "magical moments" over a period of fifteen years. These "moments" are rare. But by pooling them together, or by looking at how they develop over a long period of time in a single individual, readers are able to achieve further understanding of the process of change in child and adolescent psychotherapy.

Book News Annotation:

Terr (psychiatry, U. of California San Francisco) illustrates how psychotherapy works with children through stories from 33 child and adolescents psychiatrists working in offices, hospitals, and juvenile institutions in the US, who recount moments of change with their patients. She incorporates her own cases throughout the sections that incorporate 48 vignettes addressing using the professional persona, creating the right atmosphere, understanding the child, and reacting in an effective fashion to influence dramatic change. A variety of disorders and patients from different cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds are described. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Why and how therapy with even the most challenging kids can work.
