Overview

The authors, all affiliated with the William Alanson White Institute in New York City, intend this work as a comprehensive introduction to the experience of working in relational psychotherapy with children and parents. They review the theories of development that underlie their work and develop it into a theory of psychopathology in childhood. They then turn their attentions to the process of psychotherapy, presenting chapters and assessment, treatment planning, the use of play, transference and countertransference, interaction, parental inclusion, and therapeutic action.
