Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy: An evidence-baesd treatment

New Book about Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy

I have written a new book,
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy: Essential Practices & Methods
which is due out later this year. It is as close to a treatment manual as one can get with an experimentally based approach for this evidence-based, effective, and empirically validated treatment.

The book describes the theory base of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and the evidence base of the approach. Another chapter describes fourteen components of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. A major chapter in the book describes the phases of treatment:
Developing the Alliance
Maintaining the Alliance
and the differential uses of the components of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy in these phases.
There are chapters about working with care-givers and the importance of caregivers as the key-stone for successful treatment

The book has extensive transcripts and excerpts from actual treatment sessions to illustrate the components and phases and principles being described.

Therapists, parents, psychologists, researchers, professors, social workers, residential treatment staff, and child welfare staff will all find this book a valuable resource.
