Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There is a great need for empirically proven psychosocial strategies for enhancing children's emotion regulation and coping. This book provides refreshing, incisive guidance and insights for families coping with severe mood disorders. It addresses fundamental issues of education and cognitive control that can provide a foundation for successful adaptation. I highly recommend this book to mental health clinicians seeking to understand and remediate these complex disorders."--Joan L. Luby, MD, Professor of Child Psychiatry, and Founding Director, Early Emotional Development Program, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

"Finally, a book that brings together the wide variety of strategies available for working with families of children with mood disorders. The authors clearly show how psychoeducational psychotherapy differs from simple education. Readers will especially appreciate the wealth of clinical information and the practical, 'how-to' approach, supplemented by reproducible handouts."--David J. Miklowitz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles

"This book raises the bar for evidence-based practice resources. The authors are not just familiar with the research, they have contributed much to it, and they are also experts at engaging families. As a researcher, I am impressed by how up to date the information is. As a clinician, I appreciate the combination of a clear structure and strong supporting materials. The book provides extensive handouts and exercises for teaching and reinforcing core skills. This book combines art, science, and wisdom in a blend that will raise the game of anyone working with children who struggle to regulate their emotions or form lasting positive relationships."--Eric Youngstrom, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
