Collaborative Brief Therapy with Children Reviews


"Selekman weaves together the best of evidence-based and strengths-based psychology with creative new approaches, providing a fresh and needed resource for those who work with children and their families."--Barbara L. Fredrickson, PhD, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "The books that truly captivate me are few and far between, and this one was compelling and immediately useful. Selekman embraces the creative imagination and puts it at the forefront of his work with families. By welcoming and working on an equal footing with clients to chart a course to the changes they want to make, Selekman demonstrates true collaboration and mutual respect. I was particularly struck with his determination to engage children directly, give them a strong voice, and focus consistently on the family's strengths. This book is fun and informative reading; I highly recommend it!"--Eliana Gil, PhD, Gil Institute for Trauma Recovery and Education, Fairfax, VA "Kudos to Matthew Selekman! In clear and practical terms, he spells out the best strategies for successful clinical work with kids and families, drawing from a comprehensive and diverse list of traditional and cutting-edge theories and practices. Get this book. It will help you harness the strengths of both the field and your clients."--Scott D. Miller, PhD, Co-Director, Institute for the Study of Therapeutic Change "Anyone interested in psychotherapeutic approaches for children should find much here that is thought provoking and useful. Selekman builds on his prior work and presents new material that integrates research, theoretical ideas from a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches, stimulating case examples, and applications to new areas, including schools and primary care. This rich resource has much to offer for beginners and experienced clinicians, individual and family therapists, committed brief therapists and skeptics."--Thomas C. Todd, PhD, Director, Marriage and Family Therapy Program, Adler School of Professional Psychology
