    Looking at films including Million Dollar Baby, The Son’s Room, and The Tree of Life, Cinema as Therapy offers an understanding of how deeply emotional life can be stirred at the movies.

  4. Early Encounters with Children and Adolescents

    JUST PUBLISHED    Early Encounters with Children and Adolescents is the first training guide to use the works of beginning therapists as its focus. Far too oftentimes, therapists in training are given the "classics" to read—case histories by the masters in the field, which can sometimes leave beginning therapists intimidated or even in despair as to whether they can ever reach that level of proficiency. This book is the first to remediate that situation by providing beginners with role models they can more easily internalize through realistic case histories that reveal the ins and outs of starting in a craft that is never fully mastered.

Mental health professionals will learn how to integrate a neurocognitive perspective into their clinical research and practice of psychotherapy.

As an intervention for high-risk families, SFCR can cause a reduction in symptoms of traumatic distress and behavior problems and help families demonstrate higher functioning.
