Child-Friendly Therapy: Biopsychosocial Innovations for Children and Families (Norton Professional Books)by Marcia Stern
Synopses & Reviews
The therapy described here helps the family understand the child's difficulties from multiple perspectives and leads to fresh understandings of often-misunderstood children. Family members work as a team, strategizing and collaborating in a child-friendly, systemically informed treatment. Action-oriented techniques engage the family through right-brain learning, and include visual imagery, metaphor, and imaginative play.
Book News Annotation:
Depicting a multifaceted approach to therapy involving children, this book offers guidelines emphasizing the collaborative and resource- oriented nature of the work. The family's role in therapy is stressed. Case studies and exercises illustrate assessment and treatment techniques. Therapeutic materials, assessment tools, games, and resource lists are also included. Children's drawings (and other images) illustrate the text. Stern is a psychologist with New York University.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
'A treasure trove of creative tools and strategies to engage children in therapy.\n
Finding a therapy that 'fits' kids--one that cuts through their continuous state of overstimulation and aversion to traditional language-based methods--is not easy. Now in paperback, this books offers clinicians an array of inventive, multifaceted therapy techniques, from brain-based tips to family-oriented exercises.
Psychologist and family therapist Marcia Stern presents a playful and creative therapy for today's kids. Her family-based treatment employs multi-sensory skill building activities, and concerns itself with taking therapy outside the consulting room. Especially valuable for practitioners when the referral problem has biological underpinnings.
