Books Info:

Building a Home within free pdf For children and adolescents in foster care, stable relationships with caring adults are often absent. This book presents a proven solution based on over 10 years of ground-breaking work by the Children's Psychotherapy Project (CPP): When young people work with the same therapist for as long as they need to, they'll make better progress toward developing healthy relationships and hope for the future. More than a dozen experts from the CPP give readers a complete, research-supported introduction to this successful model, in which therapists donate time to weekly sessions with the same children. Through the lessons these therapists learned in their work with the CPP, readers will gain insight on how to build positive relationships with children and address various aspects of foster care (see Contents). The combined emphasis on biological, psychological, and social aspects sets this resource apart from other books on the subject, and case studies and therapy-in-action scripts make this book ideal for organizations setting up their own programs.
