Overview

Despite considerable attention to the problem of child abuse, thousands of children become victims of emotional, physical, and sexual maltreatment each year. Psychotherapy of Abused and Neglected Children is specifically designed to assist mental health professionals, carefully laying the groundwork for realistic and effective treatment intervention. Illustrated by sensitive case examples and grounded in contemporary attachment theory, the volume provides a comprehensive survey of the known developmental effects of abuse and neglect and offers valuable methods for managing the various stages of treatment. The authors offer sensible suggestions for engaging child clients and supply practical guidelines for interviewing and assessment. Emphasis is placed on establishing and maintaining a successful therapeutic relationship, and structured activities and play therapy techniques are addressed as methods for helping children express their feelings. The book also explores effective ways to enlist parents, foster families, caregivers, and teachers in supporting children's healing and recovery. Finally, the authors consider the personal implications for therapists working with abuse victims and propose constructive coping strategies, such as setting realistic treatment goals and diversifying caseloads.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Laura Kavesh, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: The book is divided into 12 chapters related to the therapy of abused and neglected children; it begins with an overview of the subject, including research related to the impact of abuse on functioning, then addresses child and family assessment and treatment.
Purpose: The authors seek to provide an inclusive description of individual psychotherapy strategies for children who have endured various types of abuse and neglect. The authors rightfully acknowledge a hole in their work — their failure to address group strategies and their decision to include family strategies only as they complement individual psychotherapy.
Audience: The book is written for clinicians who conduct individual psychotherapy with victims of abuse and neglect.
Features: There are a limited number of tables and figures, but an extensive reference section, in this nicely laid out and organized text, whose readability is aided by the generous use of section heads and whose format (i.e., an initial section on the extent and effects of abuse, followed by a thinner section on evaluation, then extensive attention to therapy) is logical and practical.
Assessment: This book would be a useful addition to university libraries and to the collections of clinicians in the area of abuse and neglect. The authors manage to present an overview/primer for the beginner without sacrificing a more sophisticated arsenal of suggestions and methodologies the more advanced clinician would need to find one more book in this field useful. The book would be less helpful to those who work with teenagers or those whose who do largely group work.
