Residential Treatment: A Cooperative, Competency-Based Approach to Therapy and Program Design (Norton Professional Books)

by Michael Durrant (Author), Michael Durrant (Author)

Synopsis

Proposing a framework for residential treatment based on the principle of solution-focused therapy, this book sees the process as a co-operative one involving clients, parents and staff, with the aim of helping children and adolescents, and their families, develop new views of themselves as competent. A central rites of passage metaphor suggests that placement is a period of transition, when children can experiment with new ways of behavior.
