"This is a particularly challenging time in the supervision of child psychotherapy: The demand for mental health services for children has never been greater, yet evidence is accumulating that many therapies practiced in community settings are ineffective. In Helping Others Help Children: Clinical Supervision of Child Psychotherapy, T. Kerby Neill examines the critical role of supervision in this survey of practices and procedures and explores promising new child therapies. The book revisits child therapy for contemporary demands by presenting a cross-section of supervision practices in child psychotherapy, which include some of the most promising new child therapies. Readers will find rich discussions on dealing with supervision of play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy with children, including techniques associated with each therapy and suggestions for the observation and training of supervisees. In addition, ethics in supervision and cross-cultural supervision are addressed. This text will empower supervisors, students, and practitioners to meet the challenges found in all therapeutic environments, including urban mental health centers and schools"--Introduction.

This practical text offers professional guidance on stopping domestic violence in couples and families and promoting healing and safety in its aftermath. Rich in theoretical diversity (attachment, trauma, feminist, narrative) and inclusive of family structures and forms of violence, the coverage takes an approach to understanding both complex circumstances and intervening with families. The tasks of healing, from reestablishing trust to fostering positive coping, are clearly linked to effects of abuse such as unresolved loss, blunted trauma responses, poor emotion regulation, and damaged relational esteem. And because sustained safety is crucial to well-being, the authors extend their concepts of safety to include professionals’ own experience, security, and self-care. Among the topics covered: · Living with violence in the family: retrospective recall of women’s childhood experiences. · How to help stop the violence: using a safety methodology across the life span. · Helping couples separate safely: working towards safe separations. · Healing and repair in relationships: working therapeutically with couples. · Working systemically with parents, children, and adult survivors when the abuse stops. · Supervision and consultation with practitioners who intervene with families and trauma. Intervening after Violence is an essential resource for social workers and mental health professionals engaged in clinical practice seeking strategies for working therapeutically and systematically with couples and families coping with physical and emotional violence.

Each chapter describes these steps in detail, provides case examples to illustrate their application, and presents exercises that encourage readers to integrate them into their everyday practice. This handy guide is written for the school social workers, school psychologists, school nurses, and school counselors who are responsible for acting in their students' best interests, as well as post-secondary students studying to enter one of these professions. It will be a trusted resource for school services professionals seeking clear but nuanced guidance in resolving thorny ethical issues.

Play therapy interventions are critical elements of providing responsive services within the context of comprehensive school counseling programs. However, many school counselors are not trained in the use of play therapy techniques during their graduate training programs as Play Therapy is not a required course based on standards set by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) (2009). Indeed, while there are over 400 school counseling programs in the U. S., there are only 11 certified play therapy training centers. Even more critically, school counselors may not know which play therapy approaches and interventions are evidenced based for specific childhood concerns (e. g., selective mutism, social skills deficits, parent deployment). Play therapy is a structured, theoreticallybased approach to counseling that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children as they may not have developed the complexities of language to accurately express their concerns (Carmichael, 2006; Gil, 1991; Landreth, 2002; O'Connor & Schaefer, 1983). Further, children who are most in crisis may be the ones who need play concepts integrated in counseling; yet, many school counselors are unprepared to provide these vital resources. The focus of this book is on various play techniques and the application of various play therapy theories (i. e., Child Centered Play Therapy, Solution Focused Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy) within comprehensive school counseling programs, addressing various childhood concerns, prevention and intervention. Each chapter offers vignettes, a literature review of a specific childhood concern (e.g., homelessness, separation anxiety), pragmatic interventions for the school environment, and a case study to demonstrate application of techniques.
