About this book

Contemporary psychodynamic theory profoundly impacts our understanding of the development of psychopathology in children and adolescents. This book creates new concepts derived from contemporary psychodynamic theory that necessitate a revision to the principles underlying our understanding of and approach to young patients in psychotherapy. Moreover, this book reviews recent contributions from contemporary two-person relational psychodynamic theory and makes use of detailed case examples to bring to life this theory’s practical applications in child and adolescent psychotherapy. Psychotherapists and students of psychotherapy will find this book a valuable source of information on contemporary psychodynamic theory and a useful resource for introducing a contemporary style into their practice, co-constructing with the patient a narrative to achieve the desired goals.

Reviews

“The purpose is to present new concepts based on contemporary psychodynamic theory to help clinicians better understand and approach young patients in psychotherapy, and to provide a source of information on contemporary psychodynamic theory that they might apply in clinical practice. The audience includes child and adolescent psychiatry trainees, as well as experienced clinicians, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and social workers. … There are not enough books on this subject, and this one is well researched and current.” (Nikita Pant, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
