  • Art Becker-WeidmanThis collection of transcripts from sessions by certified Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapists gives therapists, educators, and child welfare and residential treatment professionals a detailed understanding of how Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy is used to help children who have a history of neglect, abuse, orphanage care, or other experiences that may interfere with the normal development of attachment between parent and child. The book begins with a description of DDP, its essential components, and the ways in which those components are used differentially in different phases of treatment. The transcripts that follow illustrate those components and their uses. They cover a diverse range of clients and families so that the reader can appreciate the depth and breadth of DDP. Both the editor and the therapists themselves provide analysis and commentary on the therapists' goals, impressions, and techniques. This book complements the treatment manual Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy: Essential Methods and Practices, and will be useful in graduate courses on treatment, child welfare, family therapy, and child psychology.Buy on Amazon

  • Helen Worrall, Sian Templeton, Netty Roberts, Ann Frost, Kim Golding, Eleanor Durrant, Jane Fain, and Cathy MillsEmotional difficulties in children aged 5-11 can display themselves in a range of different behaviours, and it is important for staff in schools to be able to identify and address these problems, and to provide appropriate help.This easy-to-use tool provides an observation checklist which enables staff to identify behavioural patterns in children with social and emotional difficulties, analyse the emotional difficulties underlying these behaviours and establish what kind of help and support the children need. Behavioural responses are categorised within clearly outlined topics, including behaviour, play and relationship with peers, attachment behaviours, emotional state in the classroom and attitude to attendance. Checklists and diagrams identify different 'styles' of relating (secure, avoidant, ambivalent), to help school staff who work with children and their families to respond appropriately to the individual needs of each child. A range of handouts include activities designed to provide emotional support, to focus and regulate behaviour and enable the child to develop important social and emotional skills.Suitable for use with children aged 5-11, this tool will be an invaluable resource for teachers, teaching assistants, learning support staff, school counsellors and educational psychologists.Buy on Amazon
