Starting Treatment With Children and Adolescents provides new therapists with time-tested framework for treatment and moment-by-moment guides to the first few sessions with a new patient. In twelve remarkable case studies, the authors lay out a different individual play-therapy session that includes a verbatim transcript, a running commentary on the techniques and theory used in each session, and an analysis of what worked, what didn't, and what else the clinician could have done to make the session as productive as possible.Clinicians will come away from the book with a clear sense of how other therapists actually work and how to best manage a therapy session. They'll also find answers to common questions like how else could I have handled that situation? What other paths could I have tried? How might those other paths have played out? What treatment strategies are most advantageous to my patients' growth'”and to my own?
