Review:

From the time that this book was first written by the Geldards in 1997 I have been recommending it to my colleagues, trainees, and supervisees, having found it to be invaluable in my own work. This forth edition has been greatly expanded including additional material from a third contributor Rebecca Yin Foo, who also writes a helpful introduction... This book is a ′must have′ for any practitioner who works with children. (Pat Havell)
