Many children live in circumstances that threaten their emotional and physical development. What they face - abuse, abandonment, neglect, domestic violence, homelessness, and parental mental illness - is painful in the extreme. This book describes innovative intervention techniques and modalities proven effective with thousands of these children over the last three decades. To demonstrate the treatment methods, pride of place is given to the children's (and parents') own voices and perceptions as well as to the therapeutic process itself. These interactions afford the reader an opportunity to appreciate both the depth of the children's dilemmas and the difficulties inherent in resolving them. There is the story of Sam, for example, a foster child whose mother repeatedly breaks her promises to take him back. Sam must be helped to rely on his mother less in order to love himself more. What is described works. The treatment provides relief to the children in the here and now; follow-up data, including positive effects on IQ, family stability, and psychological functioning of individual children, show the positive results of treatment in their futures, as well.

Early intervention for ADD, trmt of foster children, children bereaved of a parent, psychotic parents, neglect.
