Description:

Mental health practitioners in a wider variety of roles interact with, coach, counsel, and train parents. But few resources exist that teach the building block skills of working effectively with parents-and without a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship, mental health providers will not be able to teach parents the crucial techniques they need to parent their children. Ultimately, the outcome everyone is working toward is better behavior on the part of the child, but in many situations, counselors, therapists, etc. can only indirectly affect the child through the parent. Based in research, theory, and years of experience working successfully with all types of parents, John and Rita Sommers-Flanagan provide mental health professionals with the tools to build rapport and trust with parents. The second half of the book covers the practical techniques of parenting such as problem-solving interventions, discipline, authority issues, and much more.
