In this book, Peter Blake articulates his clinical practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy. A clear conceptual framework and historical context is provided for the work. The book is then structured to follow the therapeutic process, from assessment (referral and initial interview, individual assessment, developmental considerations, assessment for therapy, working with parents) to therapy (physical and mental settings, interpretation, the role and challenges of play, transference and countertransference, termination). Drawing on the Winnicottian tradition, in which fun and humour have a place in child and adolescent work, Blake demonstrates how a therapist can be playful and less directly interpretative. How psychodynamic thinking can be applied in an effective yet time-limited manner is also demonstrated. The text is enlivened by many case studies and clinical anecdotes.For therapists who are new to child and adolescent psychotherapy, and who wish to take a psychodynamic approach, the book will provide a valuable introduction. For professionals who refer to or work with child and adolescent therapists, the book will provide insight into the field, dissipating much of the mystique and misunderstanding that surrounds this work. Experienced child and adolescent therapists will find of interest how Blake integrates a Kleinian, Object-Relations approach with more Interpersonal (now, Relational) thinking.

Attachment, Play, and Authenticity is an integration of the major conceptual elements of Winnicott's theorizing on the developmental process with the uniquely inventive and evocative nature of his work as a child and adult psychoanalyst. More than 25 of his most important theoretical and clinical works are closely analyzed and presented so that the enormous breadth of his clinical and theoretical contributions to child and adult psychology and psychotherapy can be demonstrated.

Early Encounters with Children and Adolescents is the first training guide to use the works of beginning therapists as its focus. Far too often, therapists in training are given the "classics" to read—case histories by the masters in the field, which can sometimes leave beginning therapists intimidated or even in despair as to whether they can ever reach that level of proficiency. This book is the first to remediate that situation by providing beginners with role models they can more easily internalize through realistic case histories that reveal the ins and outs of starting in a craft that is never fully mastered. Not only are the cases themselves fascinating, but the therapists also refer to the processes they struggled with while treating these patients. Readers will thus have a striking new counterweight to the classics they will still want to read as they progress in the field. Eight beginning clinicians discuss aspects of their clinical process, including: issues of transference and countertransference; the role of supervision; doing parent consultations, especially when one is not yet a parent; cultural/racial/socioeconomic differences between patient and therapist; and the vulnerability of not understanding for long moments in treatment. Psychodynamic beginners in every discipline will find these case histories compelling, heartfelt and inspiring.

Play Therapy: A Psychodynamic Primer for the Treatment of Young Children provides a contemporary, comprehensive exploration of the theory and technique of psychoanalytically oriented play therapy, addressing both the dearth of writings on these topics and the frequent lack of in-depth education on the basic principles and practice of psychodynamic play therapy offered by contemporary training programs for child clinicians. Divided into two distinct parts, this guide covers major theoretical issues -- including the role of play in human development, the application of basic psychodynamic concepts to work with young children, and the impact of contemporary techno-culture on play -- and offers pragmatic guidance on conducting play treatment and handling the complexities of treating young patients (e.g., initiating treatment, working with parents, managing aggression in the playroom). Among the book's standout features are: An abundance of clinical vignettes that illustrate childhood behaviors, common dilemmas, and potential therapist responses A summary of key concepts at the end of each chapter that underscores major takeaways and can be easily referenced by busy clinicians A glossary of key terms for each chapter for added comprehensibility Offering a skillful balance of broad but coherent foundational information as well as practical application, Play Therapy: A Psychodynamic Primer for the Treatment of Young Children functions both as an introduction for young therapists and as a guide for more experienced child clinicians who wish to expand their knowledge of play and its therapeutic potential.

Children whose minds as well as bodies have been damaged by the intrusions of sexual abuse, violence or neglect, and others, quite different, who are handicapped by their own mysterious sensitivities to more minor deprivations, may experience a type of black despair and cynicism that require long-term treatment and test the stamina of the psychotherapist to the utmost. In Live Company, Anne Alvarez reflects on thirty years' experience of treating autistic, psychotic and borderline children and adolescents by the methods of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Central to the book is the moving story on an autistic child's long struggle between sanity and madness, in which the author describes the arduous journey that she as therapist and he as patient made towards new understanding and his partial recovery. Modern developments in psychoanalytic theory and technique mean that such children can be treated with some success. In the book the author discusses these developments, and also describes some of the areas of convergence and divergence between organicist and psychodynamicist theories of autism. Particularly important is her integration of psychoanalytic theory with the new findings in infant development and infant psychiatry. This has enabled her to formulate some new and exciting ideas and speculate on the need for some additions to established theory. Anne Alvarez has produced a professionally powerful and englightening book, drawn from her extensive experience as a child psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic, which will be of interest to all professionals involved with children and adolescents as well as anyone interested in madness and the growth of the mind.
