Overview

All children need stable, lasting relationships with caring adults to ensure their healthy emotional, cognitive, and social development. But for children and adolescents in foster care, these essential relationships are often absent. This book presents a proven solution based on over 10 years of groundbreaking work by the Children's Psychotherapy Project (CPP): When young people work with the same therapist for as long as they need to, they'll make better progress toward developing strong, healthy relationships and hope for the future. More than a dozen experts from the CPP give psychologists, social workers, counselors, and program administrators a complete, research-supported introduction to this successful "one child, one therapist, for as long as it takes" model as they share their triumphs and challenges. Through the lessons these therapists learned as they donated their time to weekly psychotherapy sessions, readers will gain new insight on how to build positive relationships with children. They'll learn how to address various aspects of foster care.
