"Problem solving is one of the most basic and important ways of handling difficult situations. Teaching children simple and structured ways to find solutions to everyday problems will give them one of the best starts to an emotionally healthy life. The clear language and practical strategies in this book will be helpful for anyone working with children who are 'stuck,' whether they are depressed, anxious, or just going through a tough time."--Ronald M. Rapee, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and founding director, Center for Emotional Health, Macquarie University, Australia

"Problem solving is a powerful, tried-and-true strategy shown to help individuals of all ages resolve challenging social, emotional, and behavior dilemmas. Manassis teaches clinicians how and when to use this strategy in a clear, detailed, step-by-step approach. The book is rich with case examples and clinical wisdom. It equips clinicians with the foundation they need to teach children and parents how to successfully use problem solving and incorporate it into their daily lives."--Golda S. Ginsburg, PhD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"Manassis succeeds in providing a robust, accessibly written guide with a wealth of clinical scenarios. Punctuated with specific examples of therapeutic questions and statements, this book is a wonderful addition to the libraries of clinicians, supervisors, and graduate students."--Robert D. Friedberg, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Center for the Study and Treatment of Anxious Youth, Palo Alto University 

"Manassis gives step-by-step instructions for problem solving and discusses common challenges in implementation, with specific guidance for treating anxious, oppositional, and inattentive children. The book's many clinical examples incorporate the use of child-friendly language. Tables in each chapter help practitioners easily review and remember the main points for each problem-solving step; guidelines for using problem solving in group settings and with parents and families broaden the book’s utility. This is a highly useful guide for therapists and counselors working with children and adolescents."--Jill Waterman, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

"Practical, readable, compassionate, and filled with rich and realistic examples from the author’s extensive clinical experience, this book provides detailed guidance for effective problem solving with young people and families with a variety of challenges. A particular strength is the author’s wise attention to  common pitfalls  in applying these strategies. This would be an excellent textbook in training programs for professionals working with children and families."--E. Jane Garland, MD, FRCPC, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada

"A 'must-have' resource for all mental health professionals and trainees working with children and adolescents. Manassis reviews the empirical evidence for using a problem-solving approach and thoroughly describes applications across a range of clinical issues. Most striking is the candid exploration of typical problem-solving challenges, including much-needed recommendations for systematic, creative solutions. Clinicians will appreciate Manassis's spot-on evaluation of the complexities inherent to the therapeutic process. This book demonstrates the value of helping children and families learn and practice problem-solving skills that, ultimately, can empower for a lifetime."--Barbara A. Gueldner, PhD, pediatric psychologist, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Reseña del editor:

This highly accessible book presents clear steps for helping children and adolescents to develop and test out new solutions to specific social, emotional, or behavioral challenges. The author demonstrates how therapists of any orientation can implement problem solving as a stand-alone intervention or in combination with other therapeutic techniques. Extensive clinical examples illustrate what the approach looks like in action with kids of different ages; how it increases their confidence, independence, and resilience; and ways to involve parents. Strategies for overcoming frequently encountered obstacles to problem solving are highlighted throughout.
