From the Publisher:

"Jargon-free, this book lucidly describes how psychotherapy with children and adolescents is used by an expert to enable children to overcome symptoms and to promote advances in their development. By describing a wide spectrum of children with behavioral disorders, the author provides readers with a satisfying opportunity to view the inner lives of children and adolescents as they are enabled to recover from mental illness and developmental deviations." Albert Solnit, MD, Sterling Professor Emeritus, Child Study Center, Yale University

"Richard Bromfield's latest volume of child psychotherapy is a first-rate addition to the literature, deceptively easy to read, yet full of clinical wisdom. Written in plain English, it instructs primarily through description. Vignettes demonstrate important issues of technique that clarify subtle points and make them memorable. I plan to use this book as a core text in the child psychotherapy courses I teach. Both students and experienced therapists will be well served by the clear explanations of why we do what we do." Paul Brinich, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"With great attention to detail, Richard Bromfield guides us through the nuts and bolts of child and adolescent psychotherapy -- from the beginning greeting in the waiting room to the final farewell at termination. The author's belief in the therapist-child relationship and play therapy techniques as essential change agents comes through loud and clear. Both beginning child therapists and experienced clinicians will find much of value. Highly recommended!" Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Farleigh Dickinson University
