Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Working with children in therapy nearly always involves working with parents, but parents can be more challenging. This is especially true when the parents have been less than understanding or perhaps even abusive toward their child. The therapist may feel a strong loyalty to the child which, if not handled correctly, can create conflict with the parents.

This book aims to help therapists feel at ease when working with parents or caregivers. You'll find creative ways of forming good working relationships and equipping parents to help their children overcome emotional and behavioral difficulties.

This practical book outlines ways of gaining rapport, working with parents and creating useful resource materials. Example activities, worksheets and information sheets are provided, covering a wide range of children's problems and how parents can help them. This is a valuable resource that will be consulted often, both by newly trained therapists and by experienced practitioners who are looking for more effective ways of working with families.

Review:

"Clearly written, well-organized and informative." Dr. Andrew Tolmie, Department of Psychology, University of Strathclyde, UK
