“There is a great need for empirically proven psychosocial strategies for enhancing children's emotion regulation and coping. This book provides refreshing, incisive guidance and insights for families coping with severe mood disorders. It addresses fundamental issues of education and cognitive control that can provide a foundation for successful adaptation. I highly recommend this book to mental health clinicians seeking to understand and remediate these complex disorders.”

—Joan L. Luby, MD, Samuel and Mae S. Ludwig Professor of Child Psychiatry and Director, Early Emotional Development Program, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

“Finally, a book that brings together the wide variety of strategies available for working with families of children with mood disorders. The authors clearly show how psychoeducational psychotherapy differs from simple education. Readers will especially appreciate the wealth of clinical information and the practical, 'how-to' approach, supplemented by reproducible handouts.”

—David J. Miklowitz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, and Senior Clinical Researcher at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom

“This book raises the bar for evidence-based practice resources. The authors are not just familiar with the research, they have contributed much to it, and they are also experts at engaging families. As a researcher, I am impressed by how up to date the information is. As a clinician, I appreciate the combination of a clear structure and strong supporting materials. The book provides extensive handouts and exercises for teaching and reinforcing core skills. This book combines art, science, and wisdom in a blend that will raise the game of anyone working with children who struggle to regulate their emotions or form lasting positive relationships.”

—Eric A. Youngstrom, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
