Overview

Prioritizing the needs of the child as the client and based on an examination of children's rights, this book explores the legal and professional dimensions of working therapeutically with children.

The authors acknowledge the crucial importance of confidentiality in establishing a working alliance and maintaining a secure environment for therapy with children. They explain the legal framework within which practitioners operate and consider the conflicting pressures which therapists face concerning issues of parental involvement and children at risk from abuse or self-harm. With reference to the work of Freud, Klein and Winnicott, the authors show how psychoanalysis radically altered perceptions about childhood and effectively paved the way for the development of a child-focused therapy.
