This book, written as a question-and-answer dialogue between a child therapist and a supervisor, addresses all aspects of the situations encountered daily in work with children and their parents. From the most basic and practical to the broadest and most multifaceted, the questions search out the essence of what transpires in the treatment of a child.

Industry Reviews

Numerous clinical vignettes convey the simple, forthright way that Siskind talks with children. Introducing therapy to a child, she explains that 'we will need to figure out why things got so difficult, and how to make them better.' As this example suggests, this book will be a welcome guide and a 'must-read' for beginning therapists, a valued resource for experienced clinicians, and an important text in training programs for child therapists.--Elaine Seitz, Ph.D., Adelphi University
