Christiane Brems, in collaboration with new coauthor Christina Rasmussen, introduces prospective and practicing clinicians to theories and principles of applied clinical work with children ages three to twelve years. The authors take an integrated approach to understanding children and their families, using a biopsychosociocultural model for conceptualization and treatment planning. Their methods are practical and compassionate, as well as contextually grounded and individually tailored. Chapters follow the logical development of clinicians, mirroring the natural flow of work with children. Coverage ranges from the importance of a beginning practitioner’s introspection and of ethical and legal issues to a variety of intervention techniques and strategies and, finally, termination. Case studies showcase individualized and mindful treatment for each child with whom a clinician works. Outstanding Features of the Fourth Edition . . . · Essential attention to how clinicians’ self-awareness can lead to positive therapeutic relationships with children and their families. · Thorough discussions of the biopsychosociocultural model for conceptualization and treatment planning. · Emphasis on intensive assessment prior to treatment planning to address the needs of each child and family. · A compelling, practical exploration of mindfulness intervention with children. The authors’ methodology addresses the profound effects of the larger environment and culture on children. By adopting the authors’ integrated approach, clinicians are better able to understand important and complicated aspects of a child’s and family’s life. From there, compassionate, thoughtful, and relevant intervention ensues.

For the past thirty years, assumptions, myths, and conventional expectations about what it is to be a man, men's role, and male identity have been fundamentally challenged. Attempts have been made to discredit or reject even the most familiar aspects of traditional manhood. This era of cultural upheaval has created an atmosphere of widespread anxiety and bewilderment for men. To work effectively with male clients, mental health professionals must learn how to reach men and make the therapeutic process meaningful for clients who are, more often than not, stubbornly opposed to therapy. "The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men" is a compilation of information on the most current theories, research, effective treatment programs, techniques, and strategies for working compassionately and successfully with the often resistant or mandated male client. This comprehensive two-volume resource is written by an exceptional group of mental health professionals who draw on their real-life experiences of working with men facing problems in a variety of settings and circumstances. Volume Two offers clinicians practical advice for applying a wide variety of effective formats and modalities when working with male clients, including up-to-date information about cognitive, interpersonal, and integrative therapy, as well as group and family therapy. The Handbook also contains a wealth of information on such important topics as using psycho-educational principles and approaches, women therapists who work with male clients, and the critical dynamics of a male therapist and male client. In addition, this volume is filled with practical suggestions for working successfully with men from diverse cultural, sexual, and religious backgrounds. "The New Handbook of Psychotherapy and Counseling with Men" is a practical manual written for any clinician who is dedicated to helping men live lives that are satisfying, richly varied, and broadly fulfilling. The EditorsGary R. Brooks, Ph.D., is an associate professor, department of psychology, Baylor University, and former chief of psychology service at the Veterans Administration Center in Temple, Texas. He is the author of A New Psychotherapy for Traditional Men (Jossey-Bass, 1998). Glenn E. Good, Ph.D., is associate professor of educational and counseling psychology at the University of Missouri-Columbia and the past president of APA's Men's Division (51).
