Description

Psychotherapy with Infants and Young Children: Repairing the Effects of Stress and Trauma on Early Attachment (2011) – Alicia F. Lieberman and Patricia Van Horn

This eloquent book presents an empirically supported treatment that engages parents as the most powerful agents of their young children’s healthy development. Child- parent psychotherapy promotes the child’s emotional health and builds the parent’s capacity to nurture and protect, particularly when stress and trauma have disrupted the quality of the parent-child relationship. The book provides a comprehensive theoretical framework together with practical strategies for combining play, developmental guidance, trauma-focused interventions, and concrete assistance with problems of living. Filled with evocative, “how-to-do-it” examples, it is grounded in extensive clinical experience and important research on early development, attachment, neurobiology, and trauma.  (366 pages)
