The Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Casebook by Arthur Becker-Weidman

This collection of transcripts from sessions by certified Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapists gives therapists, educators, and child welfare and residential treatment professionals a detailed understanding of how Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy is used to help children who have a history of neglect, abuse, orphanage care, or other experiences that may interfere with the normal development of attachment between parent and child. The book begins with a description of DDP, its essential components, and the ways in which those components are used differentially in different phases of treatment. The transcripts that follow illustrate those components and their uses. They cover a diverse range of clients and families so that the reader can appreciate the depth and breadth of DDP. Both the editor and the therapists themselves provide analysis and commentary on the therapists' goals, impressions, and techniques. This book complements the treatment manual Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy: Essential Methods and Practices, and will be useful in graduate courses on treatment, child welfare, family therapy, and child psychology.
