"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.

Children s Use of Board Games in Psychotherapy

Play with structure board games is developmentally appropriate for latency-age children but is seldom discussed in the child therapy literature or seen as therapeutically useful. This book describes ways that structured board games can reveal the internal psychodynamic working of the child and can be understood as projective material. Clinical examples of children's play reveal parallels between their dramatic and their board-game play. Both show unconscious content, defensive needs, and interpersonal and transferential relationships. As therapists, we can search for the same underlying dynamics we would look for in these other symbolic expressions."This book also discusses a child's developmental changes and how the dramatic, magical play of childhood is replaced by the structured, rule-oriented play of the middle years. Therapists must sensitively follow hem in this development, rather than force them to continue the more regressed play of childhood or push them prematurely into the verbal world of adolescents and adults. Children's Use Of Board Games in Psychotherapy demonstrates ways to work with the material which children give us at this stage, even when expressed in the form of structured games.

"Supervision plays a central role in the clinical training of mental health professionals. In Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach (American Psychological Association, 2004), Falender and Shafranske created a comprehensive resource for the supervision of mental health practitioners. In this companion casebook, the editors have enlisted an elite group of contributors to help make the leap from theory and research to the real-life, hands-on implementation of the elements of successful supervision. With expert commentary and detailed excerpts from actual supervisory sessions, the authors describe supervision as process--the process of becoming competent, the process of psychotherapy, and the process of developing as a supervisor. The supervision relationship is examined in detail, and supervision tools are included to help supervisors implement best practices within a competency-based framework. Whether used alone or in conjunction with the earlier volume, the Casebook for Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach will be the standard resource for supervisory competence for years to come"--Jacket.

In common with Therapeutic Practice in Schools: Working with the Child Within (Routledge 2012), this second volume serves as a practical handbook for school-based counsellors, psychotherapists, arts therapists and play therapists working with young people. Written in accessible language, it is eminently applicable to the practice of both qualified and trainee therapists. Therapeutic Practice in Schools: The Contemporary Adolescent begins with an overview of key psychoanalytic ideas informing our understanding of adolescence before moving on to focus on life circumstances and issues which commonly bring young people to the therapist’s consulting room in the school. Dedicated chapters on key themes including identity, relationships, sex and sexuality, anger issues, self-harm, bereavement and bullying aim to deepen our understanding of the adolescent experience while also providing the therapist with invaluable insights into what one might say in the ‘here and now’ of the session. Chapter authors, all with considerable experience in the field, discuss approaches to sustaining the therapeutic relationship in the face of ambivalence or defiant resistance as well as thinking about the impact of social media on all aspects of adolescent development. The advantages and limitations of working with adolescents in the educational setting where school staff will have their own reasons for referring students for therapy, while the young people themselves might come with a very different agenda, are also covered. It is widely acknowledged that engaging troubled or troublesome adolescents in therapy can make an enormous difference to their lives. This book ensures that both trainee and qualified therapists are supported in the often daunting yet ever stimulating and enlivening task of working with young people in the school setting.
