Behavioral Management Guide: Essential Treatment Strategies for the Psychotherapy of Children, Their Parents, and Families : a Special Treatment Plan for Critical Incident Stress Management
Now, more than ever, therapists need the time and energy to heal their young clients.

Each diagnosis has been carefully researched and matched with the appropriate interventions for treating children. The Behavioral Management Guide can also be used as a teaching manual to train therapists on what to do in the treatment room, and to help seaso
