The Child's Voice in Family Therapy: A Systemic Perspectiveby Carole Gammer
Synopses & Reviews
Presenting a wide range of practical interventions, including art, video, and play therapy, Carole Gammer provides a comprehensive set of tools to use with children who are part of a family in therapy. Unlike many books on family therapy, this one places children's voices and experiences at the forefront.
Book News Annotation:
Gammer, a child psychologist who directs training institutes in family therapy in Europe, provides methods for interacting with children in family therapy, so that their voices are prominent in the therapeutic setting. With a focus on the practical rather than the theoretical, she draws from child therapy to present tools such as dramatization, metaphor, and systemic art techniques, talking about the past, externalization, video-supported intervention, and play therapy. She also outlines the therapeutic process, and discusses siblings and children with hyperactive behavior. Discussion of work with infants, mentally disturbed patients, adult siblings, and victims of sexual abuse is excluded. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Making sure the child's voice in family therapy is heard.
