HOW TO BE A BETTER CHILD THERAPIST

An Integrative Model for Therapeutic Change

by Barish, Kenneth

An integrative approach for child therapists of all disciplines and at all levels of training and experience.

How to Be a Better Child Therapist is an innovative contribution to the theory and practice of child therapy. Drawing on several decades of experience, Kenneth Barish presents a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to therapeutic work with children and families, based on a contemporary understanding of children's emotions and emotional needs. This book offers a new theoretical integration, an in-depth discussion of the essential processes of child therapy, and a wealth of practical recommendations to help child therapists solve the varied problems presented to us in daily clinical work.

Part 1 provides a theoretical foundation and Part 2 describes 10 principles that guide our efforts toward this overarching therapeutic goal. Part 3 presents a framework for therapeutic work with parents.

Barish offers strategies for helping children who have difficulty with separations, doing homework, getting ready in the morning, or going to sleep at night; children with tantrums and uncooperativeness, rudeness and disrespect, sibling conflicts, and addiction to video gamesproblems for which parents, often urgently, ask our help. How to Be a Better Child Therapist is both inspiring and practical, essential reading for therapists of all theoretical orientations who work with children and families.

Kenneth Barish, PhD, is clinical professor of psychology at Weill-Cornell Medical College and lives in Mamaroneck, New York.
