Bridging the gap between child and family therapy Written by a nationally recognized expert on treatment, Helping Children and Families: A New Treatment Model Integrating Psychodynamic, Behavioral, and Contextual Approaches presents a practical approach for helping children and their families work through a diverse array of issues. Goldenthal's clinical model offers specific techniques for working with children and adolescents, and shows the important connection that involving families in their treatment can make in therapeutic outcomes. Unlike other books that focus either on children or families, this insightful new work demonstrates how to help children in their own unique family context. The book features detailed advice on: * How to create a therapeutic environment that supports every person in a family * How to reassure an anxious parent * How to engage very young children * How to determine when a parent needs individual therapeutic work and how to engage the parent in this process * The five most effective ways to confront a client and reach a positive outcome * When to let a parent decide on the frequency of counseling visits and when to set an agenda * When to invite other people to participate in therapy * When to refer clients for medication evaluation or neuropsychological testing Goldenthal's integrated model offers a commonsense approach to treating childhood disorders. Addressing problems from early childhood to late adolescence, Helping Children and Families provides an engaging and accessible guide to putting this approach into practice.

In this groundbreaking book, three internationally recognized psychologists present a step-by-step guide outlining the most up-to-date innovations in schema therapy (ST). This important book offers a clear and practical road map for putting the schema mode model into practice, improving clients' interpersonal functioning, and integrates the latest advances in contextual behavioral psychology. ST is a powerful, integrative treatment model that combines aspects of cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic therapies. It has proven highly effective in treating a number of mental health issues, including difficult-to-treat personality disorders. ST’s main premise is that mental health issues arise as a result of unmet emotional needs in childhood, leading to the development of early maladaptive schemas (EMS). But, more and more, ST has shifted away from EMS to focus on schema content—that is, changing the way clients relate to their experiences and to others. This book incorporates the latest findings in contextual behavioral science with a focus on clients’ coping styles—or schema modes—and improving interpersonal functioning. The book includes exercises from compassion-focused therapies, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and even functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) to help your clients become more aware of their own unhealthy coping patterns and behaviors. You’ll also discover a range of emotion-focused and experiential techniques to use in therapy with your client.

How is an individual to lead a comfortable, productive existence when he or she was never taught the skills necessary for effective living? Adult survivors of child abuse often face this dilemma. Instead of being nurtured as children and taught life-skills by their caregivers, child abuse survivors were subjected to a daily regimen of coercive control, contempt, rejection and emotional unresponsiveness. It is not surprising, therefore, that many survivors encounter difficulty adjusting from this type of damaging childhood atmosphere to one in which they have autonomy. This book addresses the particular problems associated with treating adult survivors of child abuse. Until now, psychotherapy for child abuse survivors often centered on the trauma of their abuse experiences. However, survivors frequently reveal a history suggesting it was not abuse trauma alone that created their difficulties, but growing up essentially alone - without the consistent emotional support and guidance needed for development of effective functioning. This book presents an alternative to trauma-focused treatment that, though effective for treatment of other forms of trauma, can induce deteriorated rather than improved functioning in survivors of prolonged childhood maltreatment. The contextual therapy presented in Not Trauma Alone delineates a psychotherapeutic approach that emphasizes helping survivors develop the capacities for effective functioning that were never transmitted to them during their formative years. Detailed descriptions of the methods and interventions comprising contextual therapy are included in this critical book for all mental health professionals, clinicians, academics, and students in the field.
