Immediate interventions for struggling families, integrating four distinct areas of psychology.
Children and families burdened with attachment disruption, emotional distress or psychological disorders need effective and immediate assistance. They do not have the time to wait for long-term interventions or developmental changes to improve the parent-child relationship. Here, psychologists Elizabeth A. Sylvester and Kat Scherer provide the most effective approach in such situations: interventions that impact the entire family at relational, emotional and cognitive-behavioural levels, and that give parents agency to have rapid therapeutic impact on their children’s lives and well-being.
This addition to the celebrated Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology integrates four distinct areas of psychology: neurobiology, attachment theory, emotion and relationship-based discipline. This integration produces a clear point of entry for therapists working with struggling families and provides interventions that are logical, doable and highly effective.
