Summary "Filled with detailed, evocative examples, the volume offers both a comprehensive theoretical framework and practical therapeutic guidelines. It takes the reader step by step through assessing clients and combining play, developmental guidance, trauma-focused interventions, and concrete assistance with problems of living. Clear-cut yet flexible strategies are presented for helping parents resolve their own painful past experiences, gain insight into their child's developmental stage and unique psychological makeup, respond more effectively to his or her emotional needs, and create a safer family environment."--BOOK JACKET.
