Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Richardson, MA, PsyD (Private Practice)
Description: This is a resource book with illustrated handouts for use by parents and practitioners with children with behavior problems. This is a revision of a book first published in 1996.
Purpose: The book is for families with a child who is struggling with behavioral or adjustment difficulties, for use with a practitioner or without. The author's objectives are well-described and organized. The book is very parent friendly.
Audience: The author states this book is for use by parents or practitioners. It is written more for parents than clinicians, but he suggests that the book is ideally used by parents working in tandem with a mental health practitioner. The author has written scholarly articles and other books for professionals.
Features: The book includes a comprehensive introduction written for parents and professionals. Subsequent chapters address areas of problematic behavior and include nicely illustrated handouts for use with children. The handouts include separate versions for girls and boys, which is apt to be helpful with the younger crowd. The author also includes a sample handout with example responses, which are likely to helpful for the parent using the book without professional assistance. Clinicians are able to reproduce these handouts for professional use. The final section is a practitioner's guide for use of the book with families.
Assessment: This is good resource for professionals and parents alike. There are many practical, attractive handouts that will be a nice contribution to any clinician's collection. It is written in a practical, sensitive, and organized way that is sure to make it accessible to any interested reader.
From the Publisher

"This book has been an invaluable resource in my clinical practice, and I welcome the publication of the revised edition. Incorporating the most current theories and techniques in the field, Dr. Bloomquist has shifted the focus away from pathology and toward appreciating the developmental pathways of each child. But the basic foundation remains the same: parents are in the best position to help their children and should be afforded the best strategies and opportunities to do so. This straightforward, easy-to-read, jargon-free volume is a practical and valuable resource for parents and professionals alike. The user-friendly framework, planning strategies, reproducible charts, and effective ways of measuring change help make this one of the most often used books on my desk."--Sam Goldstein, PhD, Neurology, Learning, and Behavior Center and University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah

"I like the way Dr. Bloomquist looks at children as 'struggling' rather than putting them into a box or labeling them because of a set of symptoms. So many times I have had to have my child tested, evaluated, and categorized, when all I wanted was to find solutions to problems. Dr. Bloomquist's very concise, step-by-step Success Plans help parents do just that. Many procedures in books sound easy to implement, but the ones in this book really are written with an understanding of parents' predicaments. Dr. Bloomquist suggests practical ideas that parents can readily execute and advises them to seek extra help when needed. I think this approach empowers parents."--Lois L., mother

"This is an eminently usable book for professionals and parents, with straightforward directions for determining what help children may need and how to intervene effectively. Dr. Bloomquist clarifies the central role of parents in teaching children the skills they need, as well as the supports that parents need as they assume this responsibility. Professionals will appreciate the specific guidance provided to them in how to use the exercises, charts, and checklists as parts of clinical protocols. The skills Dr. Bloomquist details are fundamental to social, emotional and educational competence. That makes this a book of great hope: the struggling child can become a competent, successful child. And families, too often blamed as the source of their children's difficulties, can be supported in doing the patient, thoughtful work needed to achieve this success."--Glenace Edwall, PsyD, PhD, Minnesota Department of Human Service, Saint Paul, Minnesota

"Dr. Bloomquist has provided a thorough and comprehensive structure for parents to address skills development for children with behavior problems. Particularly noteworthy are the emphasis on developmental issues related to children's presenting concerns, the positive orientation, and the case illustrations that bring to life the essential points of the guidebook. This is an invaluable resource for practitioners who consult with parents or run parenting support groups or workshops. It certainly is an added bonus that the charts in each chapter are readily accessible to parents and practitioners."--Sandra L. Christenson, PhD, School Psychology Program, University of Minnesota
