New in paperback. Hardcover was published in 2004. Translates sophisticated theory and research into specific suggestions for clinica work.
Within a developmental framework, this book presents a range of effective approaches for treating early relationship difficulties and promoting more sensitive and responsive parenting. Clinicians are guided to understand the different types of problems that parents have with infants and to determine how a given family might best be served - whether by addressing health concerns that are affecting infant behaviour, modifying parental beliefs or expectations, or targeting key caregiving skills. Leading experts detail their respective therapeutic models in a practical, clinician-friendly format, including intervention guidelines and illustrative case material. Special topics covered include working with families of infants with special needs and with those at risk for child maltreatment.
