An Allowance Is Not a Bribe: And Other Helpful Hints for Raising Responsible Jewish Children
For Gonsher, a passionate commitment to Judaism is the most important legacy he and his wife have given their three sons. Thus, he encourages other Jewish parents to start their own Jewish journeys and to serve as role models in secular standards and in matters of faith and spirituality, from the time their children enter pre-school until they are grown. For example, Gonsher explains the “4-B Approach” for helping children as young as six become responsible for their bedroom, bathroom, breakfast, and backpack.
Assessment and Treatment Activities Volume Two
In this second volume, interventions are outlined for engaging, assessing, and treating children of all ages and their families. Activities address a range of issues including expression of feelings, social skills, self-esteem, and termination. A “must have” for mental health professionals seeking to add creative interventions to their repertoire.
101 Play Therapy Techniques
Building on children’s natural inclinations to pretend and reenact, play therapy is widely used in the treatment of psychological problems in childhood. 101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques incorporates methods developed to elicit the best responses from children by therapists representing cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and other orientations, and selected for their practicality, specificity, and originality. Arranged for easy reference, each bearing a succinct description and targeted application, the interventions illustrated―including Fantasy, Storytelling, Expressive Arts, Game Play, Puppet Play, Play Toys and Objects, and Group Play―have been used with success to address such common problems as low self-esteem and unresolved fear and anger, as well as more serious difficulties arising from loss, abuse, and sexual trauma.
