Practical and fun strategies that parents, teachers, and mentors in all capacities can use to teach kids-and themselves-how to be financially savvy and, ultimately, secure<br> <br> "Stawski has given parents a magnificently comprehensive guide to the difficult issue of kids and money. . . . Following his leadership will significantly diminish the problem of raising children who are consumers before they are producers in our society. If you are a parent, this practical book will help you rethink what you intend as your legacy."-J. Zink, PhD, Family Therapist<br> <br> "Too frequently, parents are reluctant to discuss financial issues with their children while they are growing up, so when they leave home they are totally unprepared to make some of the difficult financial decisions that young adults have to make. This book is about much more than teaching kids about money-it is an easy-to-understand guide on how to help your children grow up to become responsible, clear-thinking individuals who can make wise decisions."-Gary Baughman, Retired President and CEO, Fisher-Price<br> <br> "Stawski has provided an excellent roadmap for parents who want their children to have a clear perspective on the key factors of life including, but certainly not limited to, money. This book is loaded with keen insights based on 'old-style values' that will give parents a head start."-James G. Buick, President and CEO, Zondervan Corp.<br> <br> "More than a how-to-balance-your-checkbook book, this book will establish the benchmark from which all other family finance books will be measured. Read it if you want a stronger family . . . if you want your children to be more responsible . . . and if you want to be educated and entertained."-Kim Cameron, Dean, Weatherhead School of ManagementCase Western Reserve University<br> <br> Online Workbook!

Industry Reviews

A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home-run with the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, which has all of these characteristics and more.
&#8212;Edward J. Mullen, Willma &amp; Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University

This timely book provides detailed, easy to follow procedures for the treatment of traumatized adults and children, based on a solid foundation of empirically based practice. Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children, as well as others in the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, is a must read for clinicians who incorporate notions of evidence-based practice in their work.
&#8212;Tony Tripodi, DSW, Professor Emeritus, Ohio State University

Rubin and Springer have assembled the practice wisdom of leading practitioners of evidence-based practice interventions, enhancing the likelihood that these practices will be adopted by helping professionals. Each chapter introduces readers to principles which undergird a specific intervention and detailed descriptions of assessment criteria, flow of treatment, and procedural steps. Written in the language of practitioners, this book represents an exemplar for dissemination of evidence-based practice information.
&#8212;Joanne Yaffe, PhD, ACSW, Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Social Work

In their new book, Rubin and Springer and their contributors boil down more than 20 years of published research and practice to provide the busy practitioner with practical guidance in helping the traumatized. It is an indispensable guide to responsibly bringing relief to those who seek it.

Paul Henry Kursweg, MD, Distinguished Chair in Disaster Mental Health and Professor in the Graduate School of Social Work, Tulane University, Editor of Traumatology

Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children is straightforward and practical, and the step-by-step guides allow even the novice to master the skills needed for effective work with trauma Marvelous job by the editors and contributors.
