From the Inside Flap:

Lessons from the Lion's Den is a compassionate and inspirational guidebook for clinicians working with hard-to-reach emotionally disturbed children and their families. Nancy S. Cotton introduces a comprehensive approach to therapeutic management, outlining specific therapeutic actions to apply to daily situations and behavioral crises. And she shows how this approach can help children and their families learn more adaptive ways of coping with strong feelings, daily developmental challenges, wounds from the past, and biological vulnerabilities.Cotton shows how to design and create the vital environmental and interpersonal components of a safe and effective treatment setting. She offers practical guidelines for creating empathic adult-child connections, meaningful communication, and effective discipline systems. She reveals how the environmental components of the treatment context--culture, space, people, and activity schedules--can be designed to contain, engage, and teach relationship-resistant children. Using clinical vignettes, based on the actual case studies of six hundred children, Cotton vividly illustrates how to implement specific therapeutic strategies and techniques in a culture of hope, respect, and understanding.
